Union Cemetery originated in 1857. The new cemetery was located between Westport and the town of Kansas City and was to be used by both towns, becoming a "union" between the two. This is how Union Cemetery got its name. It is only fitting to conduct a U.S. Flag Dedication to the 31 Star U.S. Flag, since this is the flag that was the official flag during this period. The 31 Star U.S. Flag became the Official United States Flag on July 4th 1851. A star was added for the admission of the 31st State - California on September 9, 1850. This was the official flag for seven years. Three Presidents served under this flag were; Millard Fillmore (1850-1853), Franklin Pierce (1853-1857), and James Buchanan (1857-1861). Fifty-five thousand people have been buried in Union Cemetery.
