Charles Good Marker  Charles Good is one of the 86 black Civil War veterans buried at Woodland Cemetery. Although Good was mustered into the 5th United States Colored Infantry in 1864, some of his infantry comrades had probably been a part of the 127th O.V.I. before it had been re-designated the 5th U.S.C.I. Many of the men with whom Good fought also lie in Woodland. Unfortunately, many of their grave sites remain unmarked.   Cleveland Historical | Woodland Cemetery
