Eleven years after the battle of Rivers Bridge, a group of local young men formed the RiversBridge Confederate Memorial Association andreburied the Confederate dead here, about a mile from the battlefield. The Memorial Association began to meet at the site every yearto recall the battle and the fallen Southerners.This area soon became known as the MemorialGrounds, and the Memorial Association's annual service to commemorate the Confederatedead - a tradition that continues to this day - eventually led to the preservation of thebattlefield where the soldiers fell.
