We were driving and noticed this cemetary with lots of 100+ yr old graves and markers. It is a way to see how illnesses, war, etc shaped the community. Would like to see it get a bit more TLC.

Worth a stroll or drive for historical significance. Small cemetery with mostly modest graves for fallen Confederate soldiers. Still functional cemetery. A bit hard to find in modern golf course community.

We stayed at the Grand Hotel and took a morning walk to the cemetery. It's about 1 mile each way. The cemetery is small. It was interesting to see but don't expect much. If you have time, go for a visit.

Very disappointed there are no signage to find this cemetery, had to stop and ask a local. The cemetery needs to be cleaned, I wish I lived closer. Very humbling to see these unmarked graves of young men who died in battle. These men did...More

Really a solemn place to visit, the final resting place of a number of confederate dead many who died as the results of injuries and wounds sustained in the battle of Vicksburg in the Civil War.

The Grand Hotel served as a hospital during the American Civil War. The cemetery is very accessible and an easy walk from the hotel.
