Lexington Cemetery

833 West Main Street, Lexington, KY 40508, USA

Although the Civil War brought division among families and within families, the Lexington Cemetery Company maintained a position of neutrality. Sympathizers of each side owned lots in the cemetery, and Lexington soldiers died for both the Confederacy and the Union. There is no record of the meetings of the trustees in this period, but their official position obviously was to honor commitments to the owners of lots and to do so wholly without regard to political matters. In addition to private family lots, the trustees provided a general "Soldier's Ground" for the burial of Union dead and a corresponding Confederate lot for the burial of Southern dead.
