Soldiers Ground, on the front edge of Magnolia, was created because there was a pressing need for burial space. The cemetery was already here, however this land was still part of the Magnolia Umbra plantation.

While it was primarily for Confederate States military you will find Federal troops around, down the lane outside the CSA boundry is a commandant of West Point. A place of honor here was also set aside for a beloved ‘laundress’ with a southern brigade.

This is a very quiet and private place. The entire cemetery is large, but there are not many people around. Chances are the ones you do see have a camera.
