Unknown Soldier confederate cemetery

This cemetery was very tucked away almost missed finding it. Wish we could have at least seen markers/crosses on the graves to honor those 155 soldiers who are buried there.

The entrance is the biggest draw, the Cemetary is out of the way and a little hard to find, but it does contain a lot of history. Not nearly as spectacular as some of the other Civil War displays around the City but it is a solemn reminder of what can happen when happen when men think they are better... More

This is a sad place, but one to be seen. You won't find a cemetery full of monuments or grave markers being that most of the soldiers buried here are unknown and basically a single marker represents each one. There are a few soldiers identified near the entrance. I'm hoping the construction going on in front of the cemetery does... More

Not much to see here, a lot of unmarked graves. But it is close to the cemetery and is a very historic place.

This cemetery is just off the highway and VERY easy to miss! There is a very small entrance and not much room to turn around! Only seemed to be a few small plots! The largest being in the center! There were 155 soldiers that according to the sign out front used to have wooden plaques with name, rank, and hometown... More

Was aware going to the cemetery that this was a mass grave site and was also was aware that the cemetery was very small. Was disappointed to find the surrounding area where you park for the cemetery has apparently become a dumping ground as an old mattress was on the ground with a large overflowing garbage can. It's sad that... More

Though a visit to this small cemetery could take just minutes I was glad to have taken the time to visit I had for sometime followed online the work taking place here. Was able at last to see the result of all the hard work put in to restoring the cemetery to a fitting resting place.

It was a pretty simple route right off the freeway, but we ended up driving right past it and u-turning at the hotel across the road. There is a historical marker and two large plaques at the entrance. Arriving at the cemetery, the first thing I notice is that the freeway noise is constant and the large advertising sign is...

This is a tiny cemetery. I expected headstones with Civil War information on them. Instead, I discovered that this well kept jewel is th final resting place of thousands of unknown men who died in different Civil War battles. They were exhumed and reinterred here. I was saddened by the sheer number of men who died away from home and... More

Beautiful place to ponder your soul. Makes one wonder about those born in the 20th (and 21st century). Wow what a place that can be overlooked but definitely worth it.
