ALBANY, N.Y. (AP) - A Civil War hero from Scotland and six New York-born soldiers who died while serving in the military are being honored by the state.

A portion of a state highway and two Binghamton city streets are to be dubbed the Col. David Ireland Memorial Highway in honor of the Scotsman, who helped the Union win the Battle of Gettysburg in 1863.

Roadways in the Hudson Valley will be renamed to honor Army Capt. Clayton Carpenter, Private First Class Douglas Cordo, and Marine Corporal James Jackowski.

Also to be feted with memorial highways are Marine Corporal Nicholas Uzenski of the Mohawk Valley and Private First Class Duane Scott of western New York. Sgt. Kevin White will have a Chautauqua County bridge south of Buffalo named in his honor.
