|Cemetery notes and/or description:|
There was a VMI Cemetery located near what is today the Marshall Museum, but it was discontinued in 1912 with all graves relocated to the Stonewall Jackson Memorial Cemetery in downtown Lexington, Virginia. Those graves having a direct association with VMI were placed in Sections 587 (4 graves) and 589 (5 graves).
The only bodies OFFICIALLY buried at VMI today are 6 of the 10 VMI Cadets killed at the battle of New Market on 15 May 1864 (10 memorial tablets are at the base of the Virginia Mourning Her Dead statue) and Claudius Crozet, who is buried in front of Crozet Hall. Of course, General Jackson's horse is preserved and on display in the VMI Museum.
Please refer to the memorial Former VMI Burials (52576148) for additional information.
