We visit this cemetery each time we pass through Jonesboro. The magnitude of the sacrifice of these men never fails to leave a profound impression. This is hallowed ground where all who have an interest in military history should visit.

I enjoy going to cemeteries whether military or civilian - Especially when you see the year that someone passes on it makes you reflect a lot more on life since it is short and death since it is forever . I never really knew the history about this war or any historic events back in the 1800's but I do now and with that knowledge - God Bless America !!! Plus there is a place to sign in if you wish .

This is a hidden treasure and one you must visit. Whether you are a history buff or just interested to see a bit more about Civil War sights....this is a must see. You don't need much time to wander the cemetery. But I was very moved and amazed that this is here. So many lives, so sad. I took my 87 year old Father and he very much enjoyed the history. There is info about the sight there too. Loved this......

This is a pretty Small, but neat cemetery. There is a sign that talks about the battle of Jonesboro. Most of the graves are unknown, which is sad, but interesting. Most of us are used to seeing headstones with names and mm/dd/yy birth and death dates. The known soldiers don't all have birth dates, sometimes just a year, etc.

It's a great little stop to look around for 15 or 20 minutes. I highly recommend it.

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.

The Confederate Cemetery honors the heroes who fought so hard to save Jonesboro, GA. during the Civil War. It is their final earthly resting place - peaceful and serene. Here one can reflect on what they did that we are thankful for and what we can learn from the past so we can preserve and change what needs to be preserved or changed so that we can improve on the present and future.

Cemetery is located just north of the Jonesboro Train Depot and the Tara Museum located within. Cemetery was very close to my childhood home and I visited often. Very peaceful.

We saw this graveyard as part of our road to tara tour, it is very neat and kept up quite well, a little eerie with a lot of the names not on the stones, most of the dead here are unknown as they were reburied well after the wars end.

This is a confederate cemetery and is well taken care of. I went on Confederate Memorial Day. There were no special activities. It is separated from Main St. Jonesboro, GA by railroad tracks. There isn't much parking, but from the looks of it that is o.k.
