Ashland, Virginia

There are undoubtedly numerous Tar Heel – Confederate soldiers buried in the cemetery in Ashland, Virginia. Many of the dead from the May 1862 battle of Hanover, including members of the 7th NCST, 18th NCST, 28th NCT, 33rd NCT, and 37th NCT were most likely re-interred here after the war. This monument marks the graves of four hundred Confederate soldiers and was erected by the ladies of the Ashland Memorial Association in 1888.
