Fort Rosecrans National Cemetery
California State Historic Landmark 55
#055 Fort Rosecrans National Cemetery
A burial ground before 1847, this graveyard became an Army post cemetery in
the 1860s. It is the final resting place for most who fell at San Pasqual in 1846, and for
the U.S.S. Bennington victims of 1905. It became Fort Rosecrans National Cemetery in 1934 and
was placed under the Veterans Administration National Cemetery System in 1973. Over 50,000 who
served the U.S. honorably in war and peace lie here.
