Marker at site states:"On this site, 1861-1865, are buried several hundred Union and Confederate soldiers, killed in the Western campaign. Lack of interest from distant families allowed deterioration of the wood grave markers and heavy overgrowth. In 1927, the Jeffersonville Council determined, 'Better the sound of children's footsteps at play than the silent stride of the nearly forgotten great spirit army here at rest.' The only intact stone marker was moved to Walnut Ridge Cemetery. No bodies were exhumed."
