Confederate Generals Rest

— Battle of Lynchburg —

During the Battle of Lynchburg on June 17-18, 1864, Confederate Gen. Jubal A. Early moved his reserves into the cemetery to reinforce his lines across the Lynchburg-Salem Turnpike (Fort Ave.) at Fort Early. Before dawn on Sunday, June 19, these troops marched forward into the lines to the right of Fort Early, but by then the Union army had retreated.

Organized in 1852, Spring Hill Cemetery was designed by John Notman of Philadelphia, noted for Laurel Hill Cemetery in that city and Richmond's Hollywood Cemetery. When Jubal Early died in Lynchburg in 1894, he was buried in the southwest corner of the cemetery near the spot from which he commanded the battle. Lucy Wilhelmina Otey, who organized the Ladies' Relief Hospital to care for the most seriously wounded throughout the Civil War, rests nearby.
