This national cemetery holds the remains of 15,300 men of which only 3,000 are known. More than 20,000 soldiers died in fighting in this region of Virginia and were scattered in isolated burial sites. At the conclusion of the war, the U.S. Government created this national burial site and many of those remains were re-interred here over the next four years
