Long Description:

Fifty-four Confederate soldiers, who died at a nearby wartime hospital, are buried in a cemetery in Kittrell. The city's location at a railroad junction made it a good spot for a 300-bed facility, created in mid-1864.

There is adequate signage in Kittrell to locate the cemetery without a GPSr. Start from the North Carolina Highway Historic Marker on U.S. Route 1 North at Kittrell. (Note that while the historic marker reads 52 buried soldiers, there are actually 54 soldiers in the cemetery. These can can be spotted by newer markers.)

The Confederate Cemetery is actually part of a larger local cemetery in Kittrell.

To record your own visit to this marker, take and post your own photo of the historic marker and post it with your log. This photo is proof of your visit and is required. Thanks.
