Reburial site of 1616 Confederate military personnel and slaves that died while POWs at Camp Morton at Indianapolis, Indiana. They were originally buried in Greenlawn Cemetery which was the city of Indianapolis’ “city cemetery”. This cemetery was abandoned due to erosion from the adjacent river and the encroachment of the railroad company. The remains were buried in another section of Greenlawn cemetery in 1870 and the moved to Crown Hill in 1931
