Virtual Tour Stop, Spotsylvania Confederate Cemetery
After the war, the Fredericksburg National Cemetery was created for Union soldiers who died in the Fredericksburg area, see the virtual tour of this cemetery in the Fredericksburg Battlefield section. In 1867, a search was made for Confederate dead and the Spotsylvania Confederate Cemetery was created.
The citizens of Spotsylvania dedicated this monument in the cemetery on May 30, 1918 to honor the Confederate dead.
The cemetery contains 741 marked graves, 534 of which are known.
Strangely the Confederate Cemetery contains three headstones for Union soldiers. None of the three are buried here and none died in the area. None of the headstones indicate that they are simply memorial stones, not graves.
15th New Jersey Regiment and 49th New York Regiment monuments at Bloody Angle.
This concludes the Virtual Tour of Spotsylvania.
