Federal soldiers were buried in the Public Burying Ground of Lynchburg throughout the Civil War. In October 1866 the United States Burial Corps exhumed the remains of nearly every Union soldier interred here and transported them to Poplar Grove National Cemetery, south of Petersburg, Virginia. Poplar Grove is now managed by the National Park Service and is included on many Petersburg Civil War tourist maps and brochures. Visit these websites for more information: and
