TOPIC: CIVIL WAR

The Civil War took place from April 15, 1861 to August 20, 1866. Keep in mind that Spring Grove was founded almost 20 years BEFORE the Civil War started. The reason that there are so many soldiers buried in SG is because of the many Civil War hospitals in this area. Most soldiers died from wounds or disease and were eventually buried here. A lot of the bodies were buried at Camp Dennison, on the east side of town. About 40 bodies were reinterred outside of SG. There are 40 Union Civil War generals and 1 Confederate General buried in SG.

Since its founding 150 years ago, Spring Grove Cemetery & Arboretum has been an important part of Cincinnati's heritage. It serves as a guardian of much of Cincinnati's past. In 1995, the Board of Trustees established the Spring Grove Heritage Foundation to educate the public about and promote the natural beauty and historic integrity of Spring Grove in ways not normally covered by the cemetery's operations. Through the sponsorship of events, tours, workshops and seminars, the Foundation serves to promote Spring Grove's cultural, historic, and natural resources. Often referred to as a «museum without walls,» Spring Grove possesses fine art and architecture of eclectic styles as diverse as any collection. Your $4 or $5 donation goes to the Spring Grove Heritage Foundation.
