"Mount Pleasant Cemetery Soldiers' Lot is located within Mount Pleasant Cemetery in Augusta, Maine. In 1853, Vassal D. Pinkham sold the city of Augusta 12 acres located on top of Burnt Hill for use as a public cemetery. After the cemetery was named, subsequently the hill was renamed "Mount Pleasant."

"In 1862, Mount Pleasant Cemetery donated four lots totaling 1,500 square feet in the western portion of the property to the federal government. Eight years later, cemetery officials donated six additional lots in the eastern portion of the cemetery, composed of 2,250 square feet. As a result, there are 60 interments in the eastern portion and 29 interments in the western portion of the cemetery."
