Confederate Memorial Cemetery

The Historic Confederate Memorial Cemetery

The cemetery is located at the corner of 6th Street and Jones Avenue. It is surrounded by a wall made with domestic brick. Isaiah Carter, born circa 1751 and died 1817, gave the land for the cemetery to be created. There are 196 grave markers here that are readable but many more that are not. A total of 49 Confederate soldiers are buried here. Confederate Memorial Day services are held here each year in April. View photo gallery of Waynesboro attractions.
