The "Soldiers Cemetery" was established on the battleground near the center of the Union line. The project began soon after the close of the battle as rains and wind wore away the soil from the shallow graves that dotted the battlefield. Pennsylvania Governor Andrew Curtin supported the project and funds were provided by the commonwealth to purchase ground on Cemetery Hill. The many southern dead would remain on the field until the 1870's, when they were removed to cemeteries in the south.
