Confederate Memorial and To Name the Fallen Wall for 600 fallen Confederate soldiers who died in hospitals following the Battles of First and Second Manassas/Bull Run who were disinterred from their unmarked graves and reinterred beneath this granite monument. Union troops pulled up the wooden markers of the original headstones and burned them for firewood in the winter of 1863. The names were lost until 1982 when Robert E. Smith of Carpentersville, Illinois was searching the Archives for his ancestor and found a box of records from the Warrenton field hospitals which identified 520 of the 600 fallen soldiers. The wall was built and dedicated in 1998, and the names, units, and dates of death were engraved on the stones surrounding the monument.
