The National Cemeteries established during or shortly after the Civil War were almost always for the interment of Union men only. Confederate dead, if on a field held by Union forces after a battle, were commonly buried in a mass grave on the battle field. It is a rare accident that a fallen Confederate can be found in a National Cemetery. Most noted exceptions to this are some few cemeteries near POW camps where Confederates died. Finns Point National Cemetery in New Jersey is an example. There is an obelisk there listing the names of over two thousand Confederates who died at Fort Delaware.
