Get history here for free. Graves of the great Wagoneer Daniel Morgan, Confederate graves, and the old walls of one of the first churches in Winchester. Pleasant walking and remembrance of the past. Yes, it's a cemetery so if you are not into them then its probably not your cup of tea.

One of the earliest monuments to the unknown Confederate dead is here, erected in 1879. There are 829 souls known but to God who rest in these grounds from many of the battles in the area. Each state (except Kentucky) has their own monuments to their dead. Rest in peace brothers, you've earned it. Deo Vindice...

The Stonewall Cemetery is just a small part of the Mount Hebron Cemetery located about 150 yards from the cemetery's main office. Visiting the is the quickest way of locating the cemetery, in which a woman will show on a map the exact cemetery's location, which can be walked or driven to.

All eleven confederate states have some type pf memorial that will at least 20 or possibly 100 grave sites. Several individual stones are:
Gen. Turner-Ashey.
Major Jas Thomson,
Capt. Hugh McGuire.
Brigadier Gen. Robert Danial Johnson,
In Honor of the Women of Winchester.
One stone that stands out-not to readable- is the Patton Brothers. One brother was uncle of WW11 U.S. General George S. Patton.

By itself is the To the Unknown & Unrested Dead, with three separate stones.
1.) Unknown Dead from the Battle of Cedar Creek Battle Field.
2.) Unknown Dead from the Kernstown Battlefield.
3.) Unknown Dead from the Cool Spring Battle.

Depending on what a visitor views & reads, time spent could be 15-45 minutes. The grass hadn't been mown for a while, was a bit high & wet. Would suggest waiting two days if any measurable rain has fallen.

If person has an a civil war cemetery of the final resting site of the confederate passing a visit is recommended.

Stonewall Cemetery was just part of a larger cemetery. Unless you just like visiting cemeteries, this was not really special. The National Cemetery next door was more interesting in my opinion given the history of the place.

We are history nuts and have a great interest in The American Civil War. Knowing what we do, walking about we recognized many names involved in America's history. This is a place needing to be preserved and respected.

Here are many interred heroes of the revolutionary war and the civil war- Mosby, Morgan, etc. The grounds are well-kept and all of the monuments are striking. Well worth the time to visit.
