Looking for NC's Civil War - Maplewood Cemetery, Wilson

It seems that all of my posts last week have center around stones. This post will be no different. During the War, a Confederate hospital existed in Wilson, North Carolina. It was known as General Hospital No. 2. After the war was over, 101 men who had died in the hospital and were interred locally were removed to the Maplewood Cemetery. In 1902, the monument above was donated to mark their final resting spot. In 2003, two of North Carolina's Sons of Confederate Veterans Camps erected a plaque with the names of the men (mostly North Carolinians) who were interred at the site.

This image was taken in May 2008.
