There are more than 1,500 burial sites for veterans of wars dating from the War of 1812 to the Vietnam War. This site was originally intended to be used as a burial site for Civil War soldiers from the surrounding area, with the first burial taking place in 1861.

This cemetery holds the distinction of being a final resting place for Federal and Confederate soldiers. Federal gravestones have a familiar arched top while the Confederate gravestones have a gabled angle top.
