There is not a National Cemetery in Vermont, at least technically.

However, the Soldiers' Lot holds the remains of 18 Civil War soldiers and a civilian employee of the hospital who died at nearby Smith U.S. Army Hospital during the war.

They were originally buried in the 'barracks cemetery' near the camps south of the village. In 1869, the Federal Government purchased a 1,500-square-foot lot in Prospect Cemetery, and transferred the remains from the barracks cemetery.

Although the town of Brattleboro manages the cemetery, the Department of Veterans Affairs oversees the soldiers' lot, which is managed by the Massachusetts National Cemetery.
