“Southern Pride”

Marietta Confederate Cemetery

Reviewed March 25, 2013

One whole generation of the South's best and brightest young men were laid to rest in this cemetery. They were determined, brash and brave and who died fighting for Southern rights, way of life and for pride. This all happened almost 149 years ago. Today, while walking down its paths, you can still feel their spirit, hopes and their joie de vivre seething from the lawn and the white washed crosses. They lost the war but won eternal lasting peace.

A well maintained memorial for those fallen in battle, this cemetery is host to several services throughout the year. A tour through history and a great way to trace family lineage and dates. This is not far off of the Square proper and is a fitting resting place for those who fought on both sides. My grandchildren were amazed by the ages shown on the headstones. Couple this with Marietta's haunted history and it makes for a wonderful learning experience with bedtime stories that may keep the little ones up at night.

This is a large and sprawling cemetery honoring the many lives that were sacrificed during the Civil War on both sides. One cannot help but be moved by the lines and lines of headstones, names, and ages of the dead.

What a neat, historical place to take children. It was a very moving experience for our entire family. Be sure to walk around and check out the whole cemetery.
