While this is an active national cemetery, it is the resting place of some 11,700 union soldiers who died at Salisbury Prison during the Civil War. The picture you see to the right is the monument to these soldiers, and fixed to it is inscribed the following:

"In 18 trenches, just south of this spot, rest the bodies of 11,700 soldiers of the United States Army, who perished during the years 1864 and 1865 while held by the Confederate Military authorities as prisoners of war in a stockade near this place"
