My daughter and I visited the Marietta Confederate Cemetery while hunting for geocaches. We got a very nice Marietta antebellum history lesson while pursuing the clues. Enjoy a visit for the history only or for a clever geocache.

Interesting piece of history. The founding of the cemetery by the 3 women adds a special fact to this historical location.

We came across this cemetery and its history quite by chance, we live in the UK and do not know too much about this part of the American past. However we spent a couple of hours here which was very informative and peaceful and has made us want to learn more.

This cemetery was a bit difficult to find and the roads in the cemetery are very narrow. The grave markers are so worn, you can't read them. There are only a few descriptors about the confederate part of the cemetery. A really neat piece of history though!

Best to visit this attraction as you take a ride on the Marietta Trolley. In that case, there is a narrator who gives informative information on this feature. It's worth the cost and ride! You'll get much more benefits.

From the website: ---This cemetery became the first place in the south where the Confederate flag was allowed to fly.--- This was not the biggest, oldest nor more artistic-looking cemetery I have ever visited, but I loved that they have the names that you hear about in the Museum of history. For example, Mary Phagan's grave is there, and a... More

A sober place where thousands of war heroes are buried. Each headstone represents a life wasted on the alter of war and greed.

The directions may seem frustrating; however, the cemetery is worth visiting. It is apparent that there are people who are doing what they can to maintain the cemetery. It is a blend of old Marietta families as well as Confederate soldiers.

Visiting any cemetery is a moving and emotional time. Once you enter Marietta Confederate Cemetery, you realized how many sacrificed their lives for the country. It's probably one of the only places where the confederate flag still stands. Thank you to those who served and are serving. God Bless America!

The Marietta Confederate Cemetery is very old and has old Marietta families graves as well as Confederate and Union Soldiers. The family section at the top is very interesting with beautiful old headstones and statuary of historical figures. I find this cemetery very peaceful and solemn and usually empty so a great place to go to meditate on life or... More
