Florence National Cemetery was established in 1865 in Florence just south of one of the largest Confederate Civil War prisoners of war camps. Early graves for the dead from the POW camp were originally marked by headboards, properly lettered, and later replaced by upright marble headstones. The cemetery is listed in the National Register of Historic Places in 1998 and includes the remains of veterans from every war and branch of the military who have served our country since the Civil War.
