I Saw The Marker

The plaque names 51 Confederate soldiers "buried here in the Barton Street Cemetery", but the cemetery was apparently destroyed when the new high school was built in 1920. Civil War historian John J Hennessy told me in May 2016 that he thought probably only the markers and not the remains would have been removed when the school was built, and he named a student at that school who remembers seeing human bones protruding from the grounds of the athletic field.
