Confederate Cemetery

Old Alabama Rd., Milner


A historical marker tells the story: "In this lonely spot lie the mortal remains of more than 100 unknown soldiers of the Confederacy. Most of them were wounded while heroically defending the City of Atlanta against the overwhelming forces of General Sherman, and died in an improvised hospital at nearby Milner."

Another historical marker places the spot of one of Milner's temporary hospitals for Confederate soldiers wounded in the Battles of Atlanta and Jonesboro in 1864, who were cared for by townspeople; Dr. John F. Hunt, a local physician; and doctors from nearby communities.
