Some were killed in the battle fought south of here, July 30, 1864. Due to the efficiency of the local hospitals, only two are "Unknown." Most of these men were veterans of many hard fought battles. Every State in the Confederacy is represented in these burials. Also, buried here are two Revolutionary War soldiers, and one from the First World War. 038-5 GEORGIA HISTORICAL COMMISSION 1956"
