The letters and numbers noted on the site plan identify the burial sections within the cemetery. Each interment (burial) is identified by section and grave number, for example: Section 7, Grave 23.

Questions for Map 2

1. What factors influenced the layout and boundaries of the cemetery?

2. Locate Monument Avenue where one would find the Dayton Soldiers Memorial. How would you describe its location?

3. In which section do you think the first burials took place? Why do you think so?

* The map on this screen has a resolution of 72 dots per inch (dpi), and therefore will print poorly. You can obtain a larger version of Map 2, but be aware that the file may take as much as 65 seconds to load with a 28.8K modem.
