Civil War Era National Cemeteries: Honoring Those Who Served
Discover Our Shared Heritage Travel Itinerary
Creating national cemeteries became a necessity during the American Civil War in order for the United States military to respectfully bury the dead. These National Cemeteries have become national shrines, honoring the sacrifice and valor of the men and women who have served this country throughout its history. The National Park Service's Heritage Education Services and Federal Preservation Institute, the Department of Veterans Affairs Historic Preservation Office and National Cemetery Administration History Program, and the National Preservation Institute, in partnership with the National Conference of State Historic Preservation Officers, produced this Civil War Era National Cemeteries Discover Our Shared Heritage Travel Itinerary to commemorate the 150th anniversary of the Civil War and remember those who served.
