This Memorial was erected in the Cemetery at Cassville, Georgia by the Ladies Memorial Association of Cassville in 1878.
The Memorial stands on the side of a hill overlooking the Graves of 300 Confederate Soldiers who Died in Hospitals and other actions in the Cassville area during the time of the Affair at Cassville as it was called in 1864.
Most if not all of the Graves are simply headstones with Unknown CSA Soldier on them. The larger cemetery itself is a mixture of graves from before, during and since the War.
There are still families in the area who try to maintain this Cemetery and the Monument. Several plaques and other monuments are in the area of this site.
The United Daughters of the Confederacy has placed a visitors box at the base of the hill leading up to the Confederate Monument and a bench also.
Cassville is a very Historic Place, and you can find much information Online. Sadly for the Folks who lived here in 1864, The Union Army Torched the Entire Town, after giving The Residents "A 20 Minute Notice" to Pack Up and Leave. The People slept close by that night in Complete Dispear, as their Town was in Smoldering Ruins, wondering what to do next.
Great Writings, are under The History of Cassville, Georgia.
Deaths recorded, 1863-1864, per Historical Newspapers, wrote this;
By giving this list publicity some bereaved family may possibly receive the first tidings that a loved member of the home circle has gone to his last sleep, and to them is
given the consolation that nothing was left undone by
experienced and humane and attentive physicians to
arrest the destroyer."
