Buried here are nineteen men (out of perhaps 100) killed during the last two days of war in Virginia. These men were at first buried where they died - at hospitals or in farm fields and woodlots around Appomattox Court House. But in 1866, the Ladies Memorial Association of Appomattox recruited volunteers to collect the eighteen Confederate bodies for reburial. The lone Union soldier was later found nearby and reburied here.

The identities of just seven of the dead are known. Of these, all had been in the Confederate army for at least three years. One, Alabamian Jesse H. Hutchins (grave #4), enlisted just three days after the firing on Fort Sumter. He had survived 1,454 days of service, only to die in the war's last 24 hours. He was killed battling Union cavalry just a few yards from the courthouse on the evening of April 8, 1865.
