Cherry Valley Cemetary is located on the corner of Harrison Ave/US 20 and Mill Rd. It is a small cemetary, with many graves from the mid-1800's to present time. I encourage everyone to take some time and view the old tombstones. You'll be surprised by what you can find...

Clues: September, 1861

Report to Sergant Roger S. Horton, Company L. You will find him on the West side of the cemetary near the road.

Sgt. Horton hands you a telegraph message. It contains the information you need to report to duty.
