There are numerous Civil War Cemeteries, both Union and Confederate, in the United States . And due to the disorganized and haphazard way that soldiers were buried after battles (with thousands of casualties) very few soldiers were identified. And this was many years before regular burial details and grave registration units

There is but one Union cemetery where all of the men buried there are identified. It is one of the smallest cemeteries and all of the men buried there died in just one battle. Name the cemetery and city.

Battleground National Cemetery. The cemetery is located at 6625 Georgia Ave NW, Washington, D.C., 20012. Battle of Fort Stevens during the only Civil War battle fought within the boundaries of the District of Columbia on July 11-12 1864. Another unique feature of Battleground is that all of the dead are identified. There are no unknowns. Every other national cemetery containing Union Civil War dead have many headstones marked unknown.
