Rosehill Cemetery, Chicago and the Civil War

« All Events

Rosehill Cemetery is the final resting place of many individuals involved in the Civil War including political leaders, newspaper editors who shaped public opinion and officers who led brigades.

A large number of soldiers from Illinois—and from Chicago in particular—fought in the United States Civil War, while those who stayed home worked to supply the Union Army with ammunition, food and medical supplies. This online program featuring Rosehill’s funereal architecture looks at the lives of some who supported efforts to preserve the Union and advance emancipation.
