Established in 1806. Cemetery Hill is the home of many Confederate Soldiers who died in the
Civil War.

Historians, along with members of General Ben Hardin Helm Camp #1703, continue to research soldiers of the Confederacy buried at this cemetery. As graves are identified and authenticated, markers are placed at the site. As you take your tour, be watchful of soldiers not yet recorded in this brochure. The onsite kiosk will help to locate these gravesites as well. Note of interest: In the upper portion of section M, you will find the burial sites of several colored troops of the Union Army. The headstones are marked with a CT (colored troop).
