Buffalo's 1812 Tomb of Unknowns Gets New Marker

A new monument will honor 300 American soldiers who died during the War of 1812 and are buried in a mass grave beneath a Buffalo golf course.

The granite marker being dedicated Monday calls attention to the so-called mound in the meadow that holds the remains of the mostly unknown soldiers.
