On various mounds are placed cannon as monuments like the one on the right. There are 4430 soldiers buried here. In the center of the cemetery stands a fine "soldiers monument." The Conf. cemetery lies next to this one with only a lane between. A wall of dressed stone surrounds the cemetery concealed on the inside by a thick hedge. 105.D.(63); July 31, 1884, Thursday 11:45 am, cloudy'

The next view (No 108) is taken from the place looking in the same general direction as this. The battle referred to in this and the following view is Sheridan's in 1864. 107.D.(64); July 31, 1884, Thursday 12:10 p.m.'
