TEXAS

Brownsville National Cemetery, established in 1867, was located within the confines of Fort Brown, Texas. In 1909, the Army post was abandoned. The Army contracted with a private firm to have the remains which were buried in the Brownsville National Cemetery transferred to the Alexandria National Cemetery in Pineville, Louisiana.

At Alexandria National, the men from the Brownsville National Cemetery were NOT individually buried nor were their names recorded. One grave contains the remains of 1,537 "unknown" soldiers who were originally buried at theBrownsville National Cemetery. The grave is marked with a large gray granite monument, outlined with small concrete cubes, and is inscribed as follows:

REMAINS OF 1537 UNKNOWN
FEDERAL SOLDIERS
REMOVED FROM THE
UNITED STATES NATIONAL CEMETERY
BROWNSVILLE TEXAS 1911

Soldiers who were unfortunate to have passed at Fort Ringgold Texas were also removed to Pineville, Louisiana and all buried in one grave
