The Resaca Confederate Cemetery is the final resting place for approximately 400 Confederate soldiers who fell in the bloody two-day Battle of Resaca on May 14 and 15, 1864, between the forces of Generals Johnston and Sherman. The daughters of Col. John Green, the superintendent of the Georgia Railroad, collected and reinterred the bodies from shallow graves to this plot known as the Confederate Cemetery, the first of its kind in Georgia.
