Resaca CSA Cemetery This site has current buried lists, as well as pictures of soldiers who died at the battle of Resaca. Also a killed in action list and wounded list. A must visit for The War for Southern Independence Buff!

  • Every state involved in The War for Southern Independence has least one national cemetery. A painstaking tabulation issued in 1908 indicates that, collectively, they hold the bodies of 315,830 Federal soldiers. An earlier tabulation showed that 9,000 Confederate prisoners of war were buried in Northern cemeteries. Most of the graves were marked. Yet "from some unknown cause" a relatively small graveyard near the Alton, Illinois, prison was reported by Lt. Asa B. Isham of the Seventh Michigan Cavalry to hold an astonishing 662 unidentified bodies of men who fought in gray.
