Within this public cemetery in the city of Fredericksburg, three thousand and three hundred Confederate War Dead are interred here and cared for by the Ladies Memorial Association of Fredericksburg. There is a large white marble statue of a Confederate officer standing holding his rifle atop a large stone base. A plaque on the base also notes the names of Confederate dead who were buried at another local cemetery at Barton Street but whose remains were lost when the cemetery site was reused in 1920 and the remains were apparently not re-interred.
