155 Unknown Confederate Soldiers
Birth: unknown
Death: 1862

155 unmarked graves of Confederate soldiers who died of various diseases in Chattanooga-area hospitals. Only on soldier is known by name, and has a marker next to the flagpole in the picture. When the soldiers were buried, their names and ranks were inscribed on wooden crosses. They were forgotten with the Union capture of Chattanooga, only to be remembered after the war. By then, the crosses had deteriorated, and no one remember who these men were. The Hamilton county road department maintains the gravel road to the cemetery, and also donated rock and cement to build a wall around the cemetery. (bio by: Dustin Oliver)
