Inscription.  Established in 1864 for Union soldiers who died in Louisiana during the Civil War, Chalmette National Cemetery is the final resting place for troops who served in peacetime and in conflicts from the War of 1812 to the Vietnam War.

Park partners, volunteers, and staffare working together on a major preservation and restoration project at the cemetery. During Volunteer Month in March, 355 volunteers spent nearly 1600 hours cleaning, realigning, resetting, and documenting the cemetery's markers and headstones.
