Oakwood Cemetary is estimated to contain the remains of more than 16,000 Confederate soldiers, making it the second largest Confederate cemetery in America. Many burials were casualties of the 1862 campaign as well as patients who died in the Chimborazo and Howard's Grove hospitals. Erected in 1870, not long after the conclusion of the Civil War, a large granite obelisk honors those Confederate dead.
