"Let it be your greatest joy to teach my child that I was one who loved my country more than life. It is the only legacy I can bequeath to him, but it is one that a prince might well be proud of." — From the diary of an American Soldier Killed in Battle.

Formerly the post burial ground, in 1884 this site was designated a National Cemetery—the first on the West Coast. It is a burial place for veterans of all wars, including hundreds disinterred from abandoned Western military posts and battlefields, and thousands from the Pacific Theater of World War II.

In all, nearly 30,000 soldiers and their family members are buried here. the cemetery was closed to burials in 1992.
