The dedication of the monument of the Unknown Death in the Arlington National Cemetery reads "Beneath this Stone repose the bones of two thousand one Hundred and Eleven Unknown Soldiers Gathered after the war from the fields of Bull run and the route to the Rappahannock.

May they rest in pease. September, A.D. 1866."
