Confederate Cemetery

National Landmark




After the Battle, the dead were buried where they fell in shallow graves. In the spring of 1866, Colonel John and Carrie McGavock had the bodies of Confederate soldiers properly buried on their land adjoining their family cemetery. The bodies of quite a number of the soldiers were claimed by their families and returned home. This is the only private Confederate Cemetery.
