Civil war history

You really have to have an understanding of the civil war from a military standpoint, to enjoy this place, but we always go back.

It could use a little TLC, but what cemetery couldn't? A must see for Civil War buffs, history buffs, those seeking to honor ALL patriots, etc. The display outside the cemetery listing the by unit, location, is very well done.

First, it's very hard to find the entrance so I advise caution. There is a ton of history here but it makes me sad that the cemetery isn't kept better.

Interesting and beautiful walk through essentially two cemeteries both dedicated to fallen soldiers killed in the series of engagements in the Battle of Marietta and Confederate veterans and their family members. The known dead 's are inscribed on walls while the thousands of other unknowns are interred in Confederate state sections. While not a supporter of a Confederate flag flying... More

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.
