Friends of Metropolitan Archives of Nashville and Davidson County, TN
Civil War Burials In Davidson County, Tennessee
The purpose of this section of the Friends of Metro Archives website is to serve as a clearinghouse for information about Civil War soldiers buried in Nashville, Davidson County, Tennessee. Many of the soldiers were originally interred in Nashville's City Cemetery. Later most Confederate soldiers were moved to Mt. Olivet. Union soldiers were reinterred at the Nashville National Cemetery. Sources include news articles, cemetery records and military records, including a log book of United States Army undertaker, W. R. Cornelius. Records of burials in Mt. Olivet Cemetery compiled by Florence Redelsheimer were invaluable to this effort. We welcome documentation of any Civil War Soldier, Confederate or Union, buried in Nashville. (At present we are researching Mt. Olivet Cemetery.)
