Established in 1854, Calvary Cemetery is the second oldest cemetery of the Archdiocese of St. Louis; at 470 acres, it is the largest in Missouri. This cemetery contains the graves of Dred Scott; General William Tecumseh Sherman; playwright Tennessee Williams; and many noted persons identified with the beginning of St. Louis.
Combining two adjacent cemeteries together, Bellefontaine Cemetery & Calvary Cemetery, there is no place on earth where more Union and Confederate generals lie at rest in such close proximity. More generals who commanded armies during the American Civil War lie here than are buried at Arlington National Cemetery and West Point combined.
