"Where Valor Proudly Sleeps"
Places like Poplar Grove National Cemetery reflect the tragedy that befell the United States during the Civil War. Each simple headstone is a poignant reminder of the human cost of war.

Administration of the Cemetery
In 1933, responsibility of the cemetery was transferred from the War Department to the National Park Service (NPS). Poplar Grove is one of 14 National Cemeteries administered by the NPS. It is closed for burials but visitors are invited to walk the grounds, which are open daily.
