Section "C"
While every space within the confines of the walls are filled with headstones, sections "C" and "D" have none. While there are no markers here this ground is the final resting place for over 900 Union soldiers. They had been killed at Brandy Station, Gordonsville, and Trevillian Station and hastily buried where they fell. Later their remains were moved to the cemetery and buried in these two sections. Because, like so many others, their remains could not be identified no markers were placed here.
