  • I found this to be a very peaceful and interesting historic graveyard. It is quite small, but there are a few plaques around to provide information. The setting is pleasant, and there are some good light hiking trails around that allow you to explore the setting of the civil war battle that took place here.
  • Maintained well. A small piece of history.
