LaGrange, GeorgiaThe Mulberry Street cemetery complex served the people of LaGrange and the South between 1863 and at least the 1930s. The oldest section is the Stonewall Jackson Confederate Cemetery where soldiers from all thirteen Southern states are buried. The Confederate Army set up hospitals in LaGrange to treat soldiers. Men injured in various Civil War battles around Atlanta arrived in LaGrange via the Atlanta & West Point Railroad around 1863 and 1864. The wrought iron fence surrounding the cemetery originally stood around the courthouse on the square in downtown LaGrange from the 1800s until 1902. The fence was moved to this cemetery before the new courthouse opened in 1904. (That structure burned in November 1936.
