Walk back in HISTORY

So much history of the Confederacy in this cemetery. Worth a walk through. The tomb of Stonewall is beautiful as well!

It is a pretty cemetery and the headstones are incredibly old and interesting. My son and his friends after school would dash thru the cemetery as frightened kids

This is a very moving cemetery. So many gravestones, family plots, famous and ordinary people make for a fascinating history tour. Definitely worth a stop in Lexington.

Considered one of the most brilliant generals in American military history, seeing Jackson's burial site was a must for me! When you walk into the cemetery, you will notice, to the right, the graves of General William Nelson Pendleton (General Lee's artillery commander), and the grave of his son, Alexander Swift "Sandy" Pendleton (Chief of Staff to General Jackson), who...

We found the cemetery to be very well maintained with lots of history.

We were there to see the monument to "Stonewall" Jackson but also to find the grave where one my ancestors is... More

The memorial to Stonewall Jackson is located in the middle of the local cemetery. We were able to find the plot of graves for his family, but had we not seen that information earlier at the Stonewall Jackson house, we would not have realized that the plot was there as it is not marked. Be sure to look for it!

We've seen it several times, and always remain struck by the fact that it's one of Lexington's main attractions, - mainly because of Jackson's fame and his roots in the town (a VMI professor, a Confederate General, etc.). After a tragic death in 1862, he was returned to the Lexington for burial. For some, Jackson looms as a figure as... More

Although not everyone likes to visit cemeteries, I find them interesting. Many of the headstones here are dated from the 1800's. Stonewall Jackson's tomb is in the center and easy to spot

Nice cool place to spend a hot summer morning walking through a historic cemetery. Don't forget to bring a lemon for Stonewall's grave.
