Over 450 Confederate soldiers who died in and around Jackson during the Civil War are buried here. Their names are known but not the exact site of each grave, as some were reburied here from graves where they fell. As Jackson awaited the final surrender, citizens, inspired by Sue Landon Vaughn, gathered here to decorate the soldiers' graves. Inscribed in the Confederate monument on the Old Capitol Green are the words "Decoration Day Originated in Jackson, Miss. April 26, 1865."
