1864 Burials

The Overland Campaign of 1864 brought a new, continuous style of fighting to Virginia and produced an increased number of casualties.  Casualties from the Battles of the Wilderness, Spotsylvania, and North Anna, along with smaller engagements, rest in the Fredericksburg National Cemetery.  Because of longer periods of occupation and the proximity of these battles to the end of the war, more soldiers were buried in known graves from these battles than those of 1862 and 1863.
