Not since 1869 has somebody taken the time to update the list of Confederate dead buried in one of the most beautiful and sacred places Richmond's Hollywood Cemetery. Cemetery. Those who relied on the 1869 list found it filled with so many inaccuracies as to be almost unusable. The thousands of Southern soldiers who made the ultimate sacrifice for their young country and were buried at Hollywood, usually with little pomp or ceremony, have been waiting for proper recognition for a long time. Many of these men have faced the injustice of having a wrong name or unit etched into their headstone. They have been relegated to obscurity and abandonment because their descendants knew not where to look. Now, thanks to Hollywood Cemetery expert and historian Chris Ferguson, the cry of these brave soldiers from across the ages has finally been answered. Ferguson has spent many painstaking hours scouring various archives and pouring over countless documents to give these soldiers their due. He has assembled the first comprehensive and accurate roster of Confederate dead buried in the South's most famous cemetery. This definitive work will certainly help some families discover where their Confederate ancestor rests. Historians, descendants, genealogists, Civil War students and cemetery buffs owe a debt of gratitude to Ferguson for putting this information in an easy to use format.
