Groveton Confederate Cemetery

                                 [38.813961, -77.545978]

In 1867, just two years after the end of the war, local citizens established this Confederate Cemetery at Groveton in order to properly inter their honored Southern dead.

Today, 266 Confederate soldiers lay at rest here, all having lost their lives on or around the fields of Manassas.

Thirty-seven years later in 1904, the United Daughters of the Confederacy erected the monument forever keeping watch at center ground

Confederate Dead

We care not whence they came dear in their lifeless clay!

Whether unknown, or known, to fame

Their cause and country still the same. They died and wore the Gray

But for them the counting of time is not: For they dwell in the city of God

They gave their lives in defense of their country on the fields of the First and Second battles of Manassas

They sleep well in their unknown graves on the far-away battle field

Markers for the 13 Confederate States ring the monument.

James Jerman Palmer

Killed in 2nd Manassas

August 30, 1862
