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.....

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.

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.
