The Soldiers' National Cemetery, Gettysburg, Pennsylvania

"The Soldiers National Cemetery covers 17 acres of ground on the highest point on Cemetery Hill. The dead lie in sections, each representing one of the eighteen Northern States to which the soldiers belong. There are also three sections of unknown dead and one of the U. S. Regular Army, making all 22 sections. No fairer resting-place for a nation's heroes could be conceived. Here lie the bodies of 3555 slain, of whom 979 are unknown."
