Sixteen Union generals, including Henry Halleck, Henry Slocum, Abram Duryee, and Fitz-John Porter, and two Confederate generals are buried at The Green-Wood Cemetery. Several Civil War monuments, including the cast zinc Drummer Boy and New York City's Soldiers' Monument, as well as a Civil War Soldiers' Lot (where approximately 130 Union veterans are interred, including men who died at Shiloh, Antietam, and Gettysburg) dot the cemetery's rolling hills. Four thousand and six hundred grave sites of Civil War veterans have been located (including 75 Confederates), and 2,000 gravestones for those in unmarked graves are being installed.
