In November 1864 more than 5,000 Union soldiers were brought to Blackshear, Georgia as Prisoners of War. Some 20 or more soldiers died during their imprisonment here. Their remains were reinterred at Beaufort National Cemetery in Beaufort National Cemetery, South Carolina. However, there is question as to whether all soldiers were reinterred to a formal burial plot.
