Forest Hill Cemetery Confederate Rest
140 soldiers buried here in the northernmost Confederate cemetery in the United States. All were from Company B of the 1st Alabama Infantry Regiment who were being held prisoner at Camp Randall. Captured on Island 10 in the Mississippi in April of 1862.

They all died within a two month period, some from their wounds, most of disease and malnutrition. Despite being confederate soldiers Madisonians brought them gifts and food daily.
