Confederate SectionAlmost every Confederate soldier who died in a Richmond hospital during the war was buried in one of three local cemeteries: Hollywood, Oakwood, or Shockoe Hill. Although Hollywood Cemetery is the best known because of the many prominent men buried there, Oakwood's Confederate section covers an equivalent area and contains the graves of more than 17,000 of the South's fighting men.
