Dear Ms. Wilson,
Thank you for posting your request on History Hub!
We searched the National Archives Catalog and located several Burial and Cemeterial Files, dated before 1915, in the Records of the Office of the Quartermaster General (Record Group 92) that may include Cypress Hills National Cemetery for February 1863 in New York. Although New York City was not a part of the Civil War conflict zone, there was a need for burial space for the soldiers who died in the area’s military hospitals. The Federal Government established a soldiers’ lot in the private Cypress Hills Cemetery in April 1862. For more information about these records, please contact the National Archives at Washington, DC - Textual Reference (RDT1) at email@example.com and include your ancestor’s name, rank, and military unit in your request.
