The Friends of the African
Union Church Cemetery
Invites you to a
“Friend Raiser Event”
Delaware City Library – Motiva
5th & Bayard Street
Right here in Delaware City lies an unheralded
bit of American history – an unmarked cemetery containing
the remains of generations of African-American people from
our area. This cemetery is the burial place of 5 members
of the US Colored Troops who served bravely on the side
of the Union in the Civil War.
It is our mission to restore this cemetery,
owned by the Mt. Salem Union AME church, and to tell the story of the mostly forgotten people who
lived, died, and were buried there.
Join us to learn about the proposed trail
and planned restoration of this cemetery.
