PREFACE.
The work of examining and cataloguing the graves of the heroes of the Secession War, in and around Richmond, was undertaken in behalf of friends at home, to save them the weary task of groping among the dead for their loved and lost ones. The results of the work, which was carried on by the Agents of the Christian Commission, under the direction of HEN. C. HOUGHTON, Chief of the Individual Relief Department, are embodied in the following pamphlet, which can lay claim to only an approximate accuracy. Further search might furnish additional particulars, and we doubt not that such search will be made. But even in aid of this, the record here given will be valuable.


BELLE ISLE.
The Cemetery at Belle Isle has been fenced in by the Commission, but the head-boards remain as when the city was occupied, the names being carved in, not painted.

DANVILLE
On the 15th of May, 1864, two U. S. C. C. Agents – Messrs. Houghton and Williams – visited Danville, and obtained the following list, which dates from November 24, 1864, to April 28, 1865. The prisoners had been confined in four large factories. The cemetery is about a mile and a half from the town, and is well arranged. The graves are marked by head-boards, with the names legibly painted, and more care is evident than in any other Confederate prison burial-place. The bodies of any of our soldiers can be obtained – through Mr. Hill, of that city, undertaker – by their friends, at any time during the Fall.

OAKLAND CEMETERY.
The following are the graves of those who died in Libby Prison, and who were buried in a gravelly ravine just outside of the Oakland Cemetery, one and a half miles out of Richmond. The Commission, through its agents, Messrs. Clarke and A. Lawrence, provided new head-boards, with the names neatly painted, for every grave, which could be identified, and procured an order to have the ground fenced in, which was done by the Quartermaster, under their inspection.
