"Historical Cemetery"

Listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1997, this 33-acre cemetery has historical significance as the resting place for Confederate and Union soldiers who died during Civil War. It was originally a cemetery for men who died in Union hospitals when Beaufort was occupied during that war. Abraham Lincoln's National Cemetery Act in 1863 made it a National Cemetery. Also interred here are several Medal of Honor Recipients and others from every conflict the United States participated in. It is designed in the shape of a half-circle and the roads are the wheel spokes. Visitors can drive through at the entrance to view the monuments and memorials from Boundary Street. The cemetery is open from 8a to sunset daily. - Natasha Lawrence
