The Histopolis Place-of-the-Day for Friday, October 15, 2010 is the Beverly National Cemetery in Edgewater Park Township, Burlington County, New Jersey.
"Beverly National Cemetery is located in Burlington County’s Edgewater Park, in the city of Beverly, N.J.
"The original cemetery was only one acre, purchased from a local resident in 1863. The plot was located in the northwest corner of the town cemetery surrounded by a picket fence. Additional land was acquired in 1936, 1937, 1948 and 1951.
"The cemetery was established to provide a burial site for veterans who died in one of two nearby hospitals. Of the original 147 Union soldiers buried at Beverly National Cemetery, only 10 are unknown. For much of its history, the cemetery handled relatively few interments. The number of interments grew dramatically, however, when space became unavailable at Philadelphia National Cemetery. Beverly National Cemetery was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1997."
