Oak Wood (Oakland) Cemetery

The following are the graves of those who died in Libby Prison, and who were buried in a gravelly ravine just outside of the Oakland Cemetery, one and a half miles out of Richmond. The Commission, through its agents, Messrs. Clarke and A. Lawrence, provided new head-boards, with the names neatly painted, for every grave which could be identified, and procured an order to have the ground fenced in, which was done by the Quartermaster, under their inspection

Oak Wood Cemetery contains the bodies of soldiers buried from Libby Prison. Graves were in vary bad condition; not one in twenty had any mark; many more had only sticks at each end. The colored sexton told us that the poor people had taken off the boards for fuel during the winter. All graves that could in any way be identified, have been marked, as stated above.
