Hollywood Cemetery Gettysburg Section Problem:
There were almost 3,000 Confederates returned from the Gettysburg battle field to Hollywood in the 1870's. Regretfully it seems that there were no records kept as to the exact location of their placement on what was then known as Gettysburg Hill.
Now known as The Gettysburg Section, the only tombstones are those placed by ancestors through research. Since the exact location of each burial is unknown the stone are aligned in rows beginning along the top of Gettysburg Hill. As others are added they are arranged in rows moving in line to the east.
Should you desire to have a headstone placed?
The fee from Hollywood is $100 for the headstone footer. The headstone itself is free as they are considered veterans. The following is the link for the Veterans paper work http://www.va.gov/vaforms/va/pdf/VA40-1330.pdf

I would be happy to link Giles Cooper to his brother S. Van Cooper, if you would provide a memorial number. I do not believe that Giles has a headstone.

Hollywood cemetery, Richmond, Virginia. I have added to FindAgrave memorial, a map of soldiers section.
Most of the civil war soldiers buried here are in mass graves. Less than 10% of all soldiers have a grave marker. Any burial identified as being in section U, W or lot 703 .... is a mass grave.
Hollywood is a private cemetery. It is well funded and has a friendly, helpful, full time staff that can help with inquiries regarding burials. Please note, many civil war soldiers were not identified. Civil war death records were made by volunteers therefore much information is incorrect, incomplete or non existent.
If you would like me to remove map from memorial, please let me know.
