Mill Springs Battleﬁeld
— National Historic Landmark —
The United Confederate Veterans placed a memorial marker on the mass grave in 1910. The stone lists no names. In the 1990s, Geoffrey Walden used unit rosters and battle reports to identify over 140 Confederate soldiers who died here. On May 26, 1997, these headstones erected in memory of the fallen Confederate soldiers were dedicated. They do not mark individual graves, but serve as a memorial to the Confederates killed or mortally wounded at the Battle of Mill Springs.
Although the Confederate dead do not lie in neat rows, their remains are here.
