on April 9, 2014 in the Brooklyn borough of New York City. Green-Wood Cemetery holds over 5,000 veterans of the war, including 75 Confederates and women who served as nurses. While New York was not the sight for any Civil War battles, it was home to numerous arms manufacturers, Confederate prisons, tens of thousands of volunteers and was a major center for the financing to the Union Army.
