  • The original grave sits in the cemetery off to the left side as you go in the entrance but his new grave is dead center of the graveyard. You can't miss it. I definitely recommend you check this out.  more »

  • Well kept grounds and this cemetary lot of history not dealing with the civil war.
  • This site is free and work a work stop. The memorial is at the center of this humbling and well maintained cemetery. The inscription is very well done and honors a great military mind. If you're in Lexington, definitely stop in to see this memorial; it will only take you 10-15 minutes to see the whole cemetery.
