Founded in 1853, Loudon Park Cemetery is one of the largest in the world and the resting place for someone from almost every family living in Baltimore today. During the Civil War, 2,300 Union soldiers and at least 650 Confederate soldiers were buried there. The nearly 3,000 Civil War burials at Loudon Park preserved in Mrs. Watring’s new book are derived from the 1981 transcription of the Loudon Park interment books made by Robert W. Barnes. The soldiers are arranged alphabetically by surname, and for each soldier there is given his name, rank, military attachment, and age. Also given are the date, cause, and place of death.
