IMG_0165

In this cemetery rest some 600 Confederate soldiers who were killed on the Civil War battlefields of Fredericksburg, Chancellorsville, The Wilderness and Spotsylvania Court House.

They came from ten Confederate States to fight for the Confederate cause here in Virginia. One-third of the Battles in the Civil War were fought in this state, and one-third of those battles were fought in Spotsylvania County.

The Spotsylvania Museum has a roster of Confederate veterans as well as a list of other burials, in the cemetery.
