Memorial Wall at the Marietta Confederate Cemetary, Marietta, Georgia
Atlanta
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.
