Cemetery notes and/or description:
The Ladies Memorial Association, organized in September 1866, began gathering the remains of Confederate soldiers killed in skirmishes throughout Burke County from scattered graves. The bodies were re-interred in this cemetery established in the early 1800s.

The monument pictured here was unveiled in 1877 by the Ladies Memorial Association. It is a 25 foot stone monument honoring the confederate soldiers. It was moved to the intersection of Liberty and Sixth street in front of the Burke County Courthouse. In 1929 it was returned to its original place in the Old Cemetery at Sixth street and Jones Avenue.
