In 1861, during Civil War, land was donated by J.B. Evans for burial of Union soldiers. By end of the war, it contained 115 troops who died in this region. Due to small size and remote location, most soldiers moved to Nashville Nat'l Cemetery, 1867. With five graves left, it became public & no longer a national Cemetery. Still known as "The Old Soldiers Cemetery".
