Some of those who died there are buried in Sharon Cemetery, in front of you, the final resting place of 81 Southern soldiers including some killed elsewhere. Col. Francis M. Green (1823-1864), 11th Mississippi infantry, is one of the few whose name is known. he survived Pickett's Charge at Gettysburg but was mortally wounded on May 12, 1864, at Spotsylvania Court House. The unknowns are honored by an obelisk, "To the Unknown Dead," in the Confederate Circle.
