I love to visit here and have the chance to stand where my ancestors stood. I have a great great great uncle buried here. I go to pay my tribute not just to him but all of the soldiers who have given their lives for our country.

Marietta has a large Union cemetery which, if you're interested in the Civil War, you ought to visit. The Confederate soldiers that died at the Battle of Kennesaw Mountain were buried in a common grave. Local women petitioned the U.S. Government to release the bodies for proper burial. This cemetery is the result.

This is a must see along with the Federal Cemetery. Be sure to walk the aisles and read some of the markers.

We visited the Marietta National Cemetery, established 1866, and the Marietta Confederate Cemetery, established 1863, the day after Christmas specifically to see the wreaths which Wreaths Across America places on the grave sites and because the two sites are close enough together to make it feasible to tour both in an afternoon. The Confederate Cemetery is adjacent to the Marietta... More

My Son took me here today while giving me a tour of Marietta. When he was young, one of my activities was as a Confederate Reenactor, 10th NC Calvary, Mounted. This was because of my love of History and in tribute to my ancestors who fought in this senseless war. It was a pleasure to see how well the Cemetary... More

This place is a must visit. The grounds crew does a tremendous job of keeping the place beautiful. Its sad though to think about all the families destroyed.

Lovely little gem on a hillside south of downtown Marietta. If you enjoy historic sites this is a must see.

There are a couple of sharp entrances, one off Powder Springs Rd, and very narrow ways but cool views at the top of the hill and lots of good statuary.....
