Inscription.  
Sick and Injured
Between 1812 and 1814, soldiers who had become sick or sustained injuries in battles were brought back to Fort Amanda. Some died from their injuries, while others succumbed to germ-related maladies such as dysentery, "lake fever” (typhoid), measles and "flux" (severe diarrhea).

In Memoriam
Seventy-five gravestones honoring unnamed soldiers of the War of 1812 were erected here in what was then called a national cemetery. Now known as Fort Amanda Cemetery, it continues to be the final resting place for local families, including veterans representing nearly every American conflict from the Revolutionary War through the present.
