Don't really know what to say, since it's a cemetery. But it's not JUST a cemetery. Besides that it's absolutely beautiful, it's also a very peaceful and powerful place. A great quick stop on our way back to Atlanta from visiting a few other historical sites in Jonesboro.

There are a lot of headstones in this cemetery without names. Unknown Solders that gave their lives in 1839. The Battle Of Jonesboro only lasted 2 days. There are still confederate flags flying on the graves which it should be

It's set off in the corner, yet well laid out and well kept up. Worth taking a look at and just reading the history of that spot. Really makes you reflect on the 'realness' of the war and how it affected the south.

Beautiful and well maintained. Part of the historical Jonesboro mini bus tour as well that leaves from the old train depot. Don't miss going to Stately Oaks while you are in the area.

Very moving experience to walk around this cemetary. Very well maintained. It was interesting to read the tombstones. What a tragedy that so many young men lost their lives!

It is amazing to look around and reflect back on what happened here during the War Between The States, the Civil War. One of the largest and most intense battles at the end of the war was fought right there.

This was a stop on our Gone with the Wind tour. I never knew about the battle of Jonesboro. I am glad I visited the cemetery. I learned that there were 66,000 Union soldiers fighting with 22,000 confederate soldiers. The confederates did not have a chance. So many lost their lives in those two days.

We stopped by the cemetery after visiting the Road to Tara Museum. My mom and I have always found cemeteries interesting and this was no exception. The design of the stones as the confederate flag, the ages of some of the soldiers when they died, the different states and regiments represented. Worth a stop if history interests you.
