This cemetery contains the tomb of Stonewall Jackson, the Confederate General but the graves of many other people including those who fought in the Revolutionary War. Easy to find and small enough to wander thru and appreciate those who came before us.

Visiting cemeteries is usually not high on my husband's list of things to do. But since we were in Lexington for a few days and visiting historical sites, he gave in and went with me. I think he found this to be an interesting cemetery. After viewing Stonewall Jackson's grave we roamed around looking at Civil War soldiers graves which... More

History lovers know how to find history in a cemetery and this is a large and old cemetery for those who love to study headstones, etc. Good records have been kept for those doing research.

This was our last stop in Lexington and rounded off our visit to Jackson's House and the Virginia Military Institute. It is worth a look as some of the graves are very old which provides another layer to the history of the Civil War.

This cemetery is so amazing. It was overwhelming to see the number of people there from so many wars. Several famous military people, not just Andrew Jackson, such as Gen Pendleton.

From Stonewall's monument to the soldier's grave that actually has 20 bodies in it to the unusual inclusion of a slave's grave, this is a 'must see' for Civil War buffs. One underplayed highlight was the grave of the man who designed and built the Virginia (Merrimac). He should have a monument as well.

While there are recent burial sites at this cemetery, close to main street are those of another time. The prominent grave of Stonewall Jackson is the focal point of the front section, however there are many old families represented in this beautiful resting place. There are several graves tucked in hidden locations too. Take the time to stroll around.

We were visiting in the area and could not miss an opportunity to visit the grave of one of the greatest generals of the Civil War. It is a fairly small place but, the monument to Jackson is very appropriate. It is a very peaceful and historic place. It is a must see if you enjoy Civil War history and... More

It's a small but atmospheric cemetery in the small but historically rich and important town of Lexington. The most famous grave here belongs to General Thomas "Sonewall" Jackson, the deeply religious and eccentric former VMI professor turned brilliant general who commanded one of Robert E. Lee's brigades and won important victories in the Shenandoah Valley early in the war against... More
