Reb or Yankee - you should stop here for the peace and tranquility that pervades the space. Even though my sympathies lie with the Union, I was moved reading some of the headstones here - you really understand that is was brother against brother, especially...More

First, it was very hard to find the entrance to the cemetery. We just kept driving around until we found it. It's not the most attractive historic cemetery we've been to but if you are a Civil War buff it should be of interest to...More

We started to tour the cemetery and came upon the statue of the three women supposedly responsible for for helping to found and maintain this burial site for confederate soldiers. That's where the odd feelings began, because we came to understand that these women along...More

The Confederate cemetery is a place of honor and beauty. I love to walk among the graves and think about the sacrifices these great men made for their beliefs and homeland.

Took my brother and sister-in-law there and walked around. It is small and very historical. We were on a hunting trip of ancestors that fought in the Civil War.

Beautiful, serene, peaceful. A piece of history not to be missed on so many levels. No judgements... Only love and respect for the sacrifices made. Not to be missed... And take your kids so they understand the value of standing for what you believe.

After hearing about this cemetery after visiting The Kennesaw Battlefield we decided to visit since it was only a couple miles away. The memorials for the different states was interesting to see. Definitely worth a quick visit to see the history of our great nation!

We went through here on a trolley tour and then went back on our own. You can't help but feel moved to be amidst the souls of so many heroes! We liked how it was divided up into the states each soldier had called home....More
