Located in the historical district of old Jonesboro, the cemetery holds the remains of hundreds of unknown soldiers who died during the Battle of Jonesboro. It is a very humbling place to visit.

This is a beautiful and thought-provoking location. Of the 600-1,000 soldiers buried here, only a handful are identified. Most of them are re-interred from local battlefields. I definitely recommend a stop here.

This cemetery is well kept and many CSA soldiers are buried there. Peaceful area and worth a visit. Found a possible ancestor of mine buried in the cemetery only because the cemetery is well maintained.
