Confederate Cemetery
Marietta, Georgia

last updated October 12, 2003

The Confederate Cemetery is located off Powder Spring Street in Marietta, Georgia. There are 3,000 Confederate dead from every southern state buried in this cemetery. Many of these are unknown and relatively few have information on their markers. First established for Confederate soldiers killed in a railroad collision in September 1863, it became the resting place for dead from nearby battlefields. In 1866, under the direction of Miss Mary J. Green and Mrs. Charles J. Williams of the Georgia Memorial Association, bodies were moved here from the Chickamauga and Ringgold battlefields. Land for the cemetery was given by Mrs. Jane Glover, Miss Ann Moyer and other citizens of Marietta. Soldiers who died in Marietta hospitals and from the Confederate Veteran's Home are also buried here. A cannon, which served Georgia Military Institute from 1852 to 1864 and was used by the Confederate Army, captured by Sherman's forces and held as a trophy of war until 1910 now rests in this cemetery. Annual Memorial Day exercises are a custom of long standing at this historical cemetery.

The known Kentucky Civil War soldiers buried in this cemetery are listed in the table below. The cemetery is a beautiful, hilly setting adjacent to the Old Marietta Cemetery. There is no on-site office or burial index available at this location. The maintenance office of the Old Marietta Cemetery maintains very limited information on site for the Confederate Cemetery.
