בית הקברות הצבאי היהודי היחידי שקיים מחוץ לגבולות ישראל

יהודים רבים שירתו בצבא הדרום בעת מלחמת האזרחים בארה"ב.

כנראה בגלל אנטישמיות, צבא הדרום סירב לקבור את החיילים היהודים בבתי הקברות שלו, והקים בית עלמין מיוחד עבורם.

התוצאה היא, שבעיר ריצ'מונד, במדינת ורג'יניה, קיים בית הקברות הצבאי היהודי היחידי מחוץ לגבולות מדינת ישראל.
כ20 חיילי הדרום קבורים בו. אחרים נקברו בבתי קבורות יהודים אזרחיים.

אחד החיילים היה יצחק לוי ז"ל, שנהרג בקרבות בחודש אוגוסט 1864.
לוי, יהודי שומר מצוות, כתב לאחותו שהוא וחיילים יהודים אחרים הצליחו להשיג אוכל כשר לפסח, ולקיים ליל סדר כהלכה...

America's Only Jewish Military Cemetery
The Hebrew Confederate Cemetery, located in Richmond, Virginia, is the only Jewish military cemetery in the world outside of Israel. It was created by the anti-Semitism of the two Confederate military cemeteries, in Spotsylvania Court House and Fredericksburg. They refused to bury the Jewish Confederate soldiers killed in the battles of Fredericksburg, Chancellorsville and Wilderness. They didn’t want “Jewish boys” in their cemeteries.


One of these soldiers was Isaac Levy of Richmond, Virginia.
He was 21 years old when he was killed in the trenches near Petersburg on August 21, 1864. He was an orthodox Jew, who wrote his sister that he and other Jewish Confederate soldiers managed to have a Passover Seder with Kosher food.
