Forty ~ five unknown Confederate soldiers, "known but to God," are buried in this cemetery. These men died of wounds or disease in the Confederate hospitals in Greensboro, 1863 ~ 1865. These hospitals were the Dawson, Bell, Polk, Court House, College and Factory. Federal troops who occupied this town for several hours on Sunday, November 20, 1864, did not molest the hospitals though they foraged the countryside and burned a number of homes, mills and business establishments.
