Ron: After the war there was a concentrated effort to find all the scattered soldier burials and place them in a central location. The Confederate soldiers are buried in Stonewall Cemetery; the Union soldiers are buried in the National Cemetery right beside Stonewall. Both are in Winchester. I will not guarentee that they got them all, as I have seen scattered newspaper articles about burials found as late as the 1940s. Frustratingly, none of them tell you what they did with the bodies, tho I am sure they were moved as they were mostly found in fields being plowed. Contact Handley Regional Library in Winchester (540-662-9041,ext 23 or they have a website) to see if they have a listing for the National Cemetery. Good luck. Mary Morris
