CINCINNATI (AP) — A Revolutionary War veteran is finally getting a grave marker in southwest Ohio.
The Cincinnati chapter of the Sons of the American Revolution set a Saturday dedication for the marker for Joel Green.
The Cincinnati Enquirer reports that Green settled in Cincinnati after the war. He served in a Connecticut regiment and was captured in the Battle of Long Island in 1776. He later escaped from a British prison.
He was buried in a Catholic cemetery, then had his remains placed in a crypt below a Catholic church.
