Abstract
The Togus National Cemetery is located in Kennebec County, in the town of Chelsea, Maine, on the grounds of what historically was known as the Eastern Branch of the National Asylum (later changed to Home) for Disabled Volunteer Soldiers (NHDVS). The institution became part of the Veterans Administration (VA) in July 1930 when all agencies administering benefits to veterans were consolidated and today the cemetery is within the grounds of the VA Maine Healthcare System, Togus.
