1. Confederate Hospital Camp Marker
Inscription.  100 yards southeast is the location of a Confederate Hospital Camp established in the summer of 1864. Soldiers wounded in battles around Atlanta were brought by train to Forsyth. The buildings at the college and other buildings in Forsyth were soon filled and tents were pitched among the trees on the hillside next to the Home of Dr. A.H. Sneed. A Confederate Cemetery was established for the mortally wounded and other soldiers were also buried in the cemetery that lies beyond.
