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.....

An important stop among the civil war history in the area. There are graves around the flags of each of the confederate and border states. Be aware that there are no records of the actual soldiers buried there. I took my husband's uncle from Maryland a few years ago. He was a Civil war buff and was disappointed not to... More

This is a "must see" for Civil War history buffs. There is so much history there you want to know all about it. There are marvelous statues and great and signs to read. We all learned a lot from our visit.

We have made a list of all we want to see in Georgia. The Confederate Cemetery biggist supporter is Mis Mattie Lyon Harris and her likeness made into a statue is beautiful. There is so much history there you want to know all about it. It's been kept up by the city and is amazingly beautiful. There are other marvelous... More

Like many other locations where Civil War battles were fought, there's a stark contrast between the cemetery where Confederate soldiers are buried in Marietta and where Union soldiers are buried. The actual name of the Confederate cemetery (this one) is City Cemetery. In addition to the Confederate graves, there are recent, even current, civilian graves here. In fact, the majority... More

This is a feature that is offered when taking the Marietta Trolley ride. It is truly a past from history. I was extremely impressed with the layout of the headstones.

Reading the dry pages of a history book seldom gives a person the real feeling of the lives and deaths of the people involved in that conflict. Looking at the graves makes you understand the meaning of some gave all, and looking at the ages of most of the soldiers makes you realize these young men never had a chance... More
