Years after the Civil War ended, veterans slowly began to form reunions. Among the most common gathering sites were cemeteries, where survivors paid homage to their fallen comrades. The McGavock Confederate Cemetery was one such meeting place.

Over time, many of these places became national battlefield parks. The first of these were Chickamauga and Chattanooga, created in 1890. Today, more than thirty Civil War national battlefield parks are protected under the National Park Service. There are also scores of other battlefields, like Franklin, that are currently preserved by city, state, and private entities.
