On the side of the Civil War Monument at the Hackensack Cemetery in Hackensack, there is a grave plot where men who served during the Civil War and Spanish American War are buried.  The only words readable on this Headstone is the serviceman’s name, “THOMAS PIERCE,” and the word “DIED”.  I am listing Thomas Pierce under the Spanish American War until we find more information on his service. 

What we do know is that Thomas Pierce is buried in the Hackensack Cemetery next to the Civil War Monument on the plot reserved for veterans.

Let us never forget their sacrifice.
