The Point Lookout Confederate Cemetery is locate before Rt. 5 turns into Point Lookout State Park. According to the history of the U.S. Civil War, the Federal Government made the Point Lookout into a military hospital and a prisoner-of-war camp at the site. The soldiers who died at the prison camp are now buried at Point Lookout Confederate Cemetery located north of the historic prison. A great piece of Civil war history. The Cemetery is maintained by the U.S. Park Service.
