Must see this cemetary in Jonesboro

Very moving experience to walk around this cemetary. Very well maintained. It was interesting to read the tombstones. What a tragedy that so many young men lost their lives!

Beautiful and well maintained. Part of the historical Jonesboro mini bus tour as well that leaves from the old train depot. Don't miss going to Stately Oaks while you are in the area.

It is amazing to look around and reflect back on what happened here during the War Between The States, the Civil War. One of the largest and most intense battles at the end of the war was fought right there.

This was a stop on our Gone with the Wind tour. I never knew about the battle of Jonesboro. I am glad I visited the cemetery. I learned that there were 66,000 Union soldiers fighting with 22,000 confederate soldiers. The confederates did not have a chance. So many lost their lives in those two days.

We stopped by the cemetery after visiting the Road to Tara Museum. My mom and I have always found cemeteries interesting and this was no exception. The design of the stones as the confederate flag, the ages of some of the soldiers when they died, the different states and regiments represented. Worth a stop if history interests you.

Had no idea the cemetery was there but toured it and got the history behind it. The kids were very interested it in. A great history lesson.

Unless you are a Civil War buff you may be disappointed. Named after the Irishman who came to the States after the Potato Famine, Cleburne defended the City of Jonesboro immediately before the fall of Atlanta. Of interest is the fact that its location is such that the Union Hospital established at the Warren House overlooked the burial site of... More

This was a stop on a tour from the Road to Tara museum. It was interesting to see how it was laid out in the form of a conferederate flag.

Located in the historical district of old Jonesboro, the cemetery holds the remains of hundreds of unknown soldiers who died during the Battle of Jonesboro. It is a very humbling place to visit.

Well maintained, interesting information was provided on our Belles and Whistles tour about how the names of these confederate soldiers are located.
