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.

I was on the Gone With the Wind tour our of the Road to Tara Museum and this was one of the stops. I walked the entire cemetery and it was a very moving experience.

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.

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.
