The interesting thing about this is how many people are buried from the war. They have flags of the confederacy and such all around one area. It is an old cemetery so there is a lot of history in this one. They even have a few slave graves in here because it used to be a family plot that was... More

I am one of those people who like to go to cemeteries and this one did not disappoint. I went on the evening on 4th of July and really enjoyed the tree-lined winding roads that go around it, it gives the sense of seclusion and being out of the city even though it's in a busy area. The grounds are... More

Had some free time while visiting my brother at the hospital and decided to drive around the city of Marietta when I came across this cemetery. I have always been fascinated by the beauty of headstones and the epitaphs their loved ones write. I was blessed to view the rows and rows of headstones of the ones who died so... More

This is a beautiful place to visit. It is very serene and peaceful. Great history there and a way to give thanks to those that gave their lives for what they believed in.

Located just a block from the Historic Marietta Square is the final resting place of many Confederate Soldiers. This cemetery is attached the Marietta City Cemetery where many prominent "OM" (Old Marietta) residents are buried. Each April there is a parade on Confederate Memorial Day that ends at this cemetery and speeches are made, battle flags are placed on each... More

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.

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.
