Marietta Confederate Cemetery
Ranked #7 of 57 things to do in Marietta
Attraction details
Reviewed March 16, 2017

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 you.

It was established in 1863 and the bodies of the dead from the Battle of Chickamauga that were left on the battlefield are buried here as well as the men who died in the Old Soldiers Home after the war.

This location is interesting if you're into Civil War sites or history. There are displays and monuments that are informative. It does seem to be a little unkempt and finding the entrance can be difficult. Worth a visit.

You really have to have an understanding of the civil war from a military standpoint, to enjoy this place, but we always go back.

It could use a little TLC, but what cemetery couldn't? A must see for Civil War buffs, history buffs, those seeking to honor ALL patriots, etc. The display outside the cemetery listing the by unit, location, is very well done.

First, it's very hard to find the entrance so I advise caution. There is a ton of history here but it makes me sad that the cemetery isn't kept better.
