Resaca Confederate Cemetery Handed Over to State

The Georgia General Assembly adopted a joint resolution accepting title to the Confederate cemetery at Resaca from the Ladies’ Memorial Association of Resaca, which formerly had assumed responsibility for the care and upkeep of the cemetery and the marking of the graves of 375 Confederate soldiers buried there. Since then, Resaca has been maintained as a state cemetery.
