The Barrancas National Cemetery is located tight at the Naval Air Station in Pensacola. It measures up to 94.9 acres of land and had about 32,643 interments. It was used as a burial ground since the time that the Fort Barrancas was constructed. By 1838, it was established as a cemetery for the US Navy. At the time of the Civil War, the city was known to be controversially contested since it served as the ideal port to access the Mexican Gulf.

Many soldiers then from both sides were interred in the said cemetery after being injured and dying from battle. It is where you can find a monument that honors soldiers who suffered from yellow fever. This monument was built by the Marine Guard.
