Confederate Burials in Northwest Georgia
I am writing a book on Confederate Soldiers buried in the Northwest Georgia area. I have decided to post a sample of the book here. If you would like a copy for your personal library, please email me at Dixiemom and I'll tell you how to send for one. I am also taking orders for headstone rubbings and photos of headstones. I hope that you enjoy the preview of my book and maybe find a longlost relative while your at it.

(author's note: It is not know if the Reverend served with any armed forces, but in my opinion they served a higher purpose. They kept the women, children and aged that were left behind together. They served God and that is the highest position that you can obtain. They deserve recognition right alongside the soldiers, whose funerals they presided over.)
