Unknown unit. Confederate Soldier. In 1866 the Women of Oakwood raised money to put wooden whitewash headboards on the graves that they could read. This was unheard of since the south was still recovering from the war. But they did it. In 1876 the headboards were rotting away they removed them because they became unsightly. The graves laid unmarked until 1900 when they put the marble headstones with numbers on them you see today. As of today no one knows how many soldiers are buried there. The picture was taken in April 5-8 1865 by Mathew Brady after the city fell on April 3, 1865.
