Visiting any cemetery is a moving and emotional time. Once you enter Marietta Confederate Cemetery, you realized how many sacrificed their lives for the country. It's probably one of the only places where the confederate flag still stands. Thank you to those who served and are serving. God Bless America!

The Marietta Confederate Cemetery is very old and has old Marietta families graves as well as Confederate and Union Soldiers. The family section at the top is very interesting with beautiful old headstones and statuary of historical figures. I find this cemetery very peaceful and solemn and usually empty so a great place to go to meditate on life or... More

The Marietta Confederate Cemetery is about four blocks south of Marietta Square. You might want to access it via Atlanta St and Brown Park, as there is a lot of traffic along Powder Springs St. The (mostly) grass-covered hillside has low graves, and is a quiet reflective place. About 3,000 Confederate soldiers are buried here, mostly from the Atlanta Campaign... More

Beautiful cemetery that was originally created for just Confederate soldiers, but now is the resting place of both Confederate and Union soldiers as well as soldiers from foreign wars as well. Very interesting and worth a visit.

If you are a historian of one level or another, you should visit this cemetery as part of a complete visit to Civil War history. This site includes those who participated in the broader Atlanta campaign, including soldiers from Chickamauga and other skirmishes from Chattanooga to Atlanta. While not of the elegance of the nearby Federal cemetery, the weather worn... More

Had a bit more time to spend at the Marietta Confederate Cemetary than I did last year and I left with a greater appreciation for those buried here. It's a very quite place as you would expect in a Cemetary. The Confederate Section is on the North End of the Cemetary overlooking Downtown Marietta. Over 3000 Confederate Men and Boys... More

Interesting and sad. Wish I lingered a little longer but was on tour bus. I feel I need to see this properly.

The history and bravery seen here was overwhelming. It was a place of serenity. They fought for their rights, just as we do everyday in today's society. Our rights are always being challenged.
