Chartered in 1859, the 350 acre Rosehill Cemetery, at 5800 Ravenswood Ave., is the oldest and largest non-sectarian cemetery in Chicago. Rosehill contains the graves of many notables and veterans of all our wars, including the American Revolution. Over a dozen mayors of Chicago have their resting place at Rosehill Cemetery as well as several prominent Chicagoans. Four Illinois governors and 12 Civil War Generals were also laid to rest here. It is the largest burial ground of Union Civil War soldiers in the Midwest.
