Here's some additional information about Camp Mangum burials from the Oakwood Cemetery website:

http://historicoakwoodcemetery.org/historic-confederate-ceme...

"Most of the Confederate dead in Wake County were buried during the war in Rock Quarry Cemetery, just across from the old Fairgrounds Hospital and the Pettigrew Hospital (later the Soldier’s Home).

.... In that early day, 1867, [citizens] moved 494 from Rock Quarry Cemetery, 20 from the city cemetery, 14 near Henry Mordecai’s, eight from Wake Forest, six from Camp Mangum (current site of the State Fair and Meredith College), two from Camp Holmes, and one each from Chapel Hill (a young Alabama lad), Mrs. Price’s farm and Flowlet’s farm (last two locations currently unknown)."
