Search Duck Hill Confederate Cemetery:

On October 19, 1862, two flat cars crowded with Confederate soldiers were demolished in a terrible train wreck near Duck Hill. The soldiers, wrapped in their blankets, were buried in a long common grave. In 1989 a Civil War reenactment group in the area sponsored a project to obtain individual markers for the men. These markers now stand in what is sometimes called Duck Hill Confederate Cemetery and sometimes Duck Hill Train Wreck Cemetery.
