The engraved names of the 1,000 known soldiers honored in the new memorial appear on two large granite walls. Their names came from an original listing in the late-1800s compiled by the United Daughters of the Confederacy. The men's names are listed according to their states. On the back of one wall is a list of individuals and organizations who contributed to the more than $100,000 raised to erect the monument. On the back of the other wall is a map of the Southern states represented in the cemetery, a battle site map and a timeline of the Marietta Confederate Cemetery, beginning with its establishment in 1863 and ending with the April 20, 1989, date the last burial of an unknown solider was conducted.

This is an overview of Atlanta

Capital and largest city in Georgia, Atlanta is known the world over for its parks, professional sports teams, shopping, museums, and entertainment. One of the fastest growing cities in the United States, Atlanta has been commended by the Environmental Protection Agency for its determination to implement ecologically friendly policies. Unlike many other Southern cities, Atlanta broke with its historic Old South architectural characteristics and opted for a progressive modern style led by native Atlantan John Portman, who created the atrium hotel in 1967 when he designed the Hyatt Regency Atlanta.
