  • We were impressed with this Civil War cemetery. There were coins placed on most of the stones. Signs with touching sayings make this place more sacred. Very well kept. It was an honor to visit.  more »

  • It was a great honor to visit this cemetery. The history darting back to one of the most bloodiest battles in the Civil War truly and honor.
  • Lost and Found. While studying genealogy, I learned I had a great-great-great grandfather that died in a battle in Franklin, TN, 30 Nov 1864 (His remains were moved here in 1865 as many that died in middle Tennessee battles and the nearby Stones River Battlefield across the street.) I am the most recent family to visit his plot, and the first in likely a century or more. My grandmother never spoke of him, so maybe she didn't know of his service in the Civil war. Sad to see so many unknown soldiers' graves. Headstones generally are in good shape as old as they are, but some have significant growth. A few small monuments provide interesting historical context. Lots of weeds in the grass, but overall, cemetery is well maintained, which I am grateful.
