Adjacent to the Battlefield

The final resting place for more than 15,000 Union soldiers with only 2,473 identified. The unknown markers are the smaller square stones; the top number indicates the plot number and the bottom number is how many bodies are buried in that plot. Located atop Marye’s Heights with two entrances. Battlefield visitor's center has a small parking lot and restrooms.

Wonderful cemetery to visit!

It was a very sobering place to visit. Realizing all of the lives that were lost at this battle. Sits high on a hill. A must see when in this area!

Important Stop on Tour of Fredericksburg Battlefield
Oct 2020
Sitting atop Mayre's Hill is the Fredericksburg National Cemetery. Final resting place of thousands of men who lost their lives fighting for the preservation of their country. Located near the Sunken Road and well worth seeing as part of a tour of Fredericksburg Battlefield.

Moving place, disappointing experience
Aug 2020
The place itself is moving for the historical events that took place here. However, the experience of being here at this time is disappointing. Got here at 10 o’clock and tried to undertake a self guided tour. Eventually we pieced together what was what from the limited signage, but there were no park service employees in sight until nearly an hour later at 11 o’clock. At no time did any of them attempt to engage us. However the gift shop was open before 10...

Final Resting Place for Union Soldiers
Jul 2020
Near the Fredericksburg Battlefield Visitor Center is the Fredericksburg National Cemetery. The tombstones are placed in a pattern similar to Arlington Cemetery. On the grounds there are monuments honoring the Fifth Corps, the LtColonel Moesch Monument, Parker’s Battery Memorial, Humphreys’ Decision Monument and the 127th Pennsylvania Volunteer Monument. Pick up a brochure at the visitor center table that explains the reasons for each of these monuments and memorials. During the walking tour, you will encounter some steep slopes and uneven ground. There are two entrances to the cemetery: one nearest the Visitor Center and the other off the Sunken Road Walking Trail.

The real toll of the war
Jun 2019
You look down on the town of Fredericksburg and can imaging the onslaught and the devastation of the Union armies attack. Definitely worth the visit.

Somber place to visit
Aug 2019
We saw where bullets had impacted in a column. There are Civil War cannons placed up on the hill. The many lonely graves is a somber reflection on the many who died here.

Amazing to See
Jul 2019 • Family
Today we went to the Fredericksburg National Cemetery and it was very cool. All of the graves were in perfect lines and the cemetery was well kept. It also reminds us of the sacrifices our soldiers made at the Battle of Fredericksburg and in the Civil War. I highly recommend this place!

Honor those who followed orders
Jun 2019 • Family
Honoring a fallen soldier is never a wasted moment. Make the trek up the hill and survey the human cost of war.

Potent reminder of sacrifice and cost of conflict.
May 2019 • Friends
On our visit to the National Cemetery we were very fortunate to attend on Memorial Day at the time the local community were holding a remembrance service for the war dead. It was a privilege to have the opportunity to be in attendance. I would liken it to an ANZAC Dawn Service in Australia or New Zealand. There service included flag detail, address from former serviceman and taps on bugle.
The significance of the cemetery and the events that took place and paying homage to those who sacrificed in this and other conflict was lovely to observe.
Highly recommended.
