Inscription. In every war, the nation has used men from this community. This significant mound, once covered with flowers, and now flags, is dedicated to the Nations dead, which insures that no soldier is forgotten on Memorial Day.

Adam Link, one of the last Revolutionary War soldiers in America, is buried in Union Cemetery. He, in a particular sense, gives honor to the village of Sulphur Springs. Adam was born November 14, 1761 near Hagerstown, Maryland. He served three enlistments with the Pennsylvania militia in the cause of the Revolutionary War against the British. Private Link died in Liberty Township on August 15, 1864, at the age of 102.
