Though there are no dates on the confederate soldier buried here, a few hints on this man are contained within the sign posted in this area called "Confederate Cemetery"
Here rest 129 confederate soldiers - 45 of them "Unknown" all of whom died in Confederate hospitals in Americus. These men served in the army of Tennessee. Some were with Gen. Jubal Early in the Washington DC raid, July 1864. Others were sent here from Andersonville, suffering and dying from the same deseases that beset Federal prisoners there. Mortality among the prison guards was a high as among the prisoners. Gallant women of the vicinity aided in the care of these men - all of whom gave their lives for the confederacy.
