The grounds of Fredericksburg National Cemetery contain a number of monuments dedicated to Union soldiers and officers. Dedicated in 1901, the Fifth Corps Monument honors the service of the corps. The monument to Colonel Joseph Moesch commemorates the officer who was killed while leading his regiment of 83rd New York Volunteers in the Battle of Wilderness. At the center of the cemetery stands the Humphrey’s Division Monument. The monument is dedicated to General Andrew Humphrey’s Division of the Pennsylvania Infantry, Fifth Corps. The men under Humphrey’s command led an unsuccessful attack on Confederate troops holding Marye's Heights, with more than 1,000 soldiers killed or wounded in the engagement.
