Mary Green Establishes the Cemetery: In 1866, local resident Mary Green took it upon herself to transfer many of the Confederate soldiers buried hastily after the battle by Union sappers to their final resting place in what is the oldest Confederate Cemetery in Georgia. The bodies of more than 440 Southern soldiers rest there today. More history about this heroic endeavor will be added later. In the meantime, a custom map detailing the position of each grave marker and the corresponding state from which the soldier served (if known) can be viewed here.
