In 2013, the Athens Cemetery proudly dedicated a Veteran’s Memorial Wall honoring veterans interred within the cemetery who served their country in the Cherokee Indian War, the Civil War, the Spanish American War, World War I, World War II, the Korean War, the Vietnam War, the Iraq and Afghanistan Wars, and all other conflicts during the time of war and peace.
The impressive 50’ long, 10’ high structure consists of eight granite panels inlaid in brick. An American flag flies proudly over the memorial and the adjoining Veteran’s Court, creating a sense of reverence. The wall was made possible by the generous donations of the Friends of the Cemetery.
A complete roster of these veterans and the conflict in which they served, may be found here (PDF).
