Florence National Cemetery

803 East National Cemetery Road, Florence, SC 29506, USA

This national cemetery was established in 1865 and is associated with the nearby Union prisoner of war camp, Florence Stockade, which held as many as 12,000 prisoners between September 1864 and February 1865. The prisoner cemetery formed the nucleus of this new national cemetery. Around 3,000 Union soldiers who died in the prison are buried here.
