Cemetery notes and/or description:
Richmond National Cemetery was opened in 1867, and is now generally closed to new interments. Located about three miles east of the Virginia state capital, this cemetery lies just within the fortification lines constructed by the Confederate Army during its defense of Richmond during the Civil War. The first burials were post-war removals from the cemetery at Belle Island Confederate Prison, from the battlefields of Cold Harbor and Seven Pines, also Oakwood and Hollywood cemeteries in Richmond, and from various field burial locations in Chesterfield and Hanover counties, Virginia. Volume 4 of the "Roll of Honor" (the series of books that list all Civil War burials in National Cemeteries) also states that a total of 556 sets of Union remains were disinterred from burial pits adjacent to the Richmond City Hospital, located just east of Shockoe Hill Cemetery in Richmond, and were reburied at Richmond National as unknowns. A total of 5,691 unknown soldiers are buried here along with thousands of known veterans. Richmond National Cemetery was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1995.
