A burial ground before 1847, this graveyard became an Army Post cemetery in the 1860s. It is the final resting place for most who fell at San Pasqual in 1846, and for the USS Bennington victims of 1905. At one time, it had become known as "Bennington National Cemetery". It became Fort Rosecrans National Cemetery in 1934 and was placed under the Veterans Administration National Cemetery System in 1973.
This cemetery is also a California registered historical landmark, #55, first registered on December 6, 1932.
Jeffrey T. Naas wrote a Memorial Day poem to honor those buried at Fort Rosecrans entitled, "On Rosecrans Hill".
