Tennessee and the Civil War - Virtual Military Cemetery

 

Virtual Military Cemetery

 

Welcome to TNGenWeb's Civil War Virtual Military Cemetery. The goal of this project is to identify all graves of veterans who served in the military units from Tennessee during the Civil War and to display photos of those graves.

 

THE SOLDIERS GRAVE
BY PEARL RIVERS

 

Tread lightly, 'tis a soldiers grave,
   A lonely, mossy mound;
And yet to hearts like mine and thine
   It should be holy ground.

Speak softly, let no careless laugh,
   No idle, thoughtless jest,
Escape your lips where sweetly sleeps
   The hero in his rest.

For him no reveille will beat
   When morning beams shall come;
For him, at night, no tattoo rolls
   Its thunders from the drum.

Tread lightly! for a man bequeathed,
    Ere laid beneath this sod,
His ashes to his native land,
   His gallant soul to God.
