Fort Rosecrans is named after a Union General William Starke Rosecrans from the Civil War. Many of the first interments date back to the California Republic and the Battle of San Pasqual. Fort Rosecrans became a National Cemetery on Oct. 5, 1934. It now housed so many of our veterans from all over the state and United States of America.
Many Fort Rosecrans interments date to the early years of the California Republic, including the remains of the casualties of the Battle of San Pasqual. Shortly after the United States declared war on Mexico in May 1846, Brigadier Stephen W. Kearny was tasked with conquering Mexico's northern provinces, New Mexico and California.
