The original plot of a few acres, donated by Henry Greene Cole, a prominent Marietta citizen, was later expanded and the Marietta National Cemetery currently comprises approximately 23 acres

 

The marble headstones covering the graceful landscape of Marietta National Cemetery keep us mindful of the fallen heroes who fought and died for what they believed

     
 

Enlarge The entry arch for the cemetery was constructed in 1883. “Marietta National Military Cemetery. Here rest the remains of 10,132 officers and soldiers who died in defense of the Union, 1861 to 1865”

 

Enlarge Visitors to the cemetery will see the Wisconsin Monument dedicated in 1925 -- a memorial to the 405 soldiers from that  state  buried  here.  The  Wisconsin badger sits atop this stately memorial
