— Battleground National Cemetery —

As the gallant soldiers that are interred at the cemetery marched onto the battlefield on July 11-12, 1864 during the Battle of Fort Stevens, their regimental flags accompanied then into the fight.

Battleground National Cemetery honors these men of valor by placing the names of the fallen under the flags they bravely fought and died for defending the nation's capital. The inner ring of graves are labeled 1-32, and the numbers 33-41 are in the outer ring.
