Austin: Texas State Cemetery

The final resting place of governors, revolutionaries, and many legendary Texans, this 22-acre sanctuary also holds the remains of 27 servicemen who served in the Great War.

One of those veterans was Henry Hutchings. At age 20, Hutchings joined the Texas National Guard. When the US entered the First World War, Hutchings organized the 71st infantry brigade, part of the 36th Infantry Division, known as the “Texas Division”. His son, Major Edwin G. Hutchings, was also part of the 36th Division and was killed in action during the war. 

These stunning grounds also feature a Visitors Center and a memorial to Texan recipients of the Medal of Honor.
