Confederate Cemetery at the Hermitage
Many people may not realize there is a Confederate Cemetery on the grounds of Andrew Jackson's Hermitage in Nashville, TN. After the Civil War ended, a Confederate Soldiers' Home was built on the corner of the Hermitage's property. Most of the soldiers buried here lived at that home. 483 soldiers are buried in concentric circles around a central granite monument.
There is a historic marker and a locked old gate at the old entrance to this cemetery along Lebanon Pike (US70) in the area. However, to visit the area today would require using the main Hermitage entrance on Old Hickory Blvd. and following Rachel's Lane under Lebanon Pk and parking at the old church.
