I accompanied my wife over to Atlanta this past weekend and while she was in her book conference, I went looking for some Confederate points of interest. Happened upon the Marietta Confederate Cemetery. An awesome place to spend a couple hours even freezing with a shivering wind chill on a January winter morning. The Marietta City Cemetery and Confederate Cemetery are situated between Powders Springs St and Atlanta St overlooking old downtown Marietta from a bluff. The cemetery displays flags for each state of the Confederacy as well as states which provided soldiers for the Cause including Maryland, Kentucky and Missouri as each state has Confederate dead buried in the cemetery.
