Florence American Cemetary

The Florence American Cemetery and Memorial covers about 70 acres on the west side of the Greve river and is framed by wooded hills.

Most of those buried here are from the Fifth Army who died in the fighting that followed the capture of Rome in June 1944; others fell in the heavy fighting in the Apennines between then and May 2, 1945.

There are approximately 5800 buried here.
