Description
 
"They fought for freedom and the preservation of the United States, but were denied burial in a National Cemetery where Abraham Lincoln stood on November 19, 1863 and gave his Gettysburg Address. Located less than a quarter-mile from the National Cemetery, is the burying ground once known as the Good Will Colored Graveyard. The veterans of the United States Colored Troops, who faithfully served the Union during the Civil War, although freed from the chains and bonds of slavery, never knew the social freedom of equality in life, or death."
