Philadelphia National Cemetery was one of 14 national cemeteries established in 1862 and was intended to be used to inter the remains of the soldiers who died in one of the many hospitals in the Philadelphia area. Over 11,500 veterans and family members are buried at the cemetery. Philadelphia National Cemetery was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1997.
