Description

Allegheny Cemetery in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, is among the oldest rural cemeteries in the United States. Forty of the most prominent citizens of the city—merchants, manufacturers, professionals and politicians—chartered the non-profit cemetery on April 24, 1844. The group purchased the first 100 acres for the cemetery for $50,000. Today the cemetery is composed of approximately 300 acres, in which about 120,000 persons are interred.\nThe soldiers\' lot is located in Section 33, lot 66, and consists of 303 individual interments. While most of the burials are Union Civil War soldiers, the lot also includes 15 Confederates and a small number of Spanish-American War veterans.\nSoldiers were originally interred in two places within Allegheny Cemetery: the plot donated to the federal government by the cemetery association, and the “stranger\'s field,\" also known as the “potter\'s field,\" an area for the poor. It is likely that all the remains were consolidated into the soldiers\' lot in the 1870\'s.\nAllegheny Cemetery, including the National Cemetery Administration\'s soldiers\' lot, was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in December 1980.
