Description

AKA: Fort Leavenworth Post Cemetery AKA: United States Disciplinary Barracks Cemetery The name Fort Leavenworth, in general conversation, usually brings with it images of the federal disciplinary barracks located on its grounds, even though the United States Army installation has a lot more to it then just the penitentiary. Nevertheless, the Fort Leavenworth Post Cemetery (U.S. Disciplinary Barracks Cemetery), which is located on the installation, has just one purpose: to serve as the final resting place for those prisoners who died or were executed while incarcerated at the prison but who's remains were never claimed. Even though the U.S. Military personnel interred there did not depart from this world with the status of having served honorably, their final resting place is maintained with a high level of respect as Fort Leavenworth honors its military history. Deceased prisoners who are not claimed by their family members are buried near the original United States Disciplinary Barracks. There are 300 graves dating from approximately 1894 to 1957, 56 of which are unmarked and 14 that belong to German prisoners of war executed for the murder of fellow POWs.
