Wanted to stop to see the gravesites of the Confederate soldiers that lost their lives here. You can drive through, but it was a nice day so I decided to walk through. Very quiet and a little eery. Was amazing to see some of the stone markers that date back to the early 1700s. The confederate section was very sad... More

A short walk from Old Town Winchester the Stonewall Confederate Cemetery is well maintained and let's you walk through history. Across the street is the Federal Cemetery - proximity allows you to pay respects to both sides fallen.

The grave markers tell a story of sadness and historical significance. The cemetery is tranquil and quiet. You leave with a feeling of peace.

Ok, so I visited on a cloudy, quiet day with not a soul in sight, and the wind sighing through the trees, gently lifting my hair and skittering leaves across the ground. After spending an hour walking through it got a little creepy, and I kept looking over my shoulder as if I were being followed! Silly, eh? :) These... More

This was a neat , old cemetery which was on the small side but walkable and easy to get to. The centerpiece was, of course, Sonewall Jackson's gravesite. I loved that people had tossed in lemons! It was a nice follow-up from seeing his headquarters.

The cemetery is beautiful. A fabulous blend of new and old. However, on our way out of the cemetery we passed a humane animal trap by a headstone. The type used to trap feral cats. Inside was a dead hedgehog and another barely moving. A squirrel was also in the trap. They were obviously trapped because they were damaging graves/the... More

Stonewall Confederate Cemetery is a very historic and beautiful cemetery. General George Patton's father is buried in the cemetery which I thought was neat information. The castle (entrance) is beautiful. The area is rich with history.

I love that Winchester has a Confederate cemetery. It's well maintained and a poignant reminder of exactly why demonizing Confederate veterans is a dangerous and distasteful element of the political correct movement in the US.

This is a well kept large cemetery with both civilian and confederate soldiers. Great stop for anyone interested in american history. There is also a smaller union soldier cemetery located across the street.

Historic cemetery near downtown Winchester where many of General Stonewall Jackson's soldiers are buried. General George Patton's grandfather and uncle are buried there!
