The Tomb of the Unknown American Revolutionary War Soldiers was dedicated on July 4, 1976 when the remains of 5 Continental Army soldiers, identified by their regimental uniform buttons were re-interred.  The remains were found during an archeological dig at what was once the site of Fort Stanwix.  The fort, manned by soldiers under the command of Col. Peter Gansvoort was put under siege by the British and their Indian allies from August 2 to 22, 1777.  It is said that in this place the “Stars and Stripes” first flew in battle.  The Tomb was the last architectural work of Lorimar Rich who designed the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier in Arlington National Cemetery. The Tomb stands on a small park plot on the corner of North James and West Liberty Streets in Rome, New York and is located near the northwest corner of the restored Fort Stanwix National
