Fredericksburg National Cemetery
The Cemetery is located on Marye's Heights. It's sobering to think of how many men are buried in it and how few are actually know by name. The square stones mark the graves of the unknown. There can be several men buried under these stones. The slightly large stones are men who remains were identified. The even larger stones, like those at other national cemeteries, were added much later.
