The Gettysburg National Cemetery is a Gettysburg Battlefield site designated as a district of the Gettysburg National Military Park. Originating as an 1863 state-owned "national cemetery" with Union reinterments from Battle of Gettysburg graves, the cemetery has subsequent sections for Spanish-American War, World War I, and other wars' soldiers and their spouses and children. The cemetery's historic district contributing structures include the stone walls (structure number CM01), iron fences and gates (CM02, CM03), burial and section markers (CM04, CM05, CM06), the brick sidewalk (CM07), and various battlefield monuments, memorials, and exhibits. - Source: Wikipedia
