Opened in 1863 when Mrs. Jane Porter Glover donated a corner of her plantation for the burial of 20 Confederate soldiers who died in a train wreck, the Marietta Confederate Cemetery is the final resting place for more than 3,000 soldiers. Every Confederate state is represented, as well as Kentucky, Maryland and Missouri, and the cemetery remains the largest Confederate cemetery south of Richmond. A large number of the buried soldiers fought nearby in The Battle of Kennesaw Mountain and The Battle of Kolb's Farm.
