The McGavock Confederate Cemetery: A Revised and Updated Compilation
Eric A. Jacobson, 2007

Book description:

A book detailing the complex story of the McGavock Confederate Cemetery is long overdue. The manner in which the cemetery was organized and maintained by private means has a much broader scope than ever before realized. The facts presented are remarkable, allowing the reader to witness firsthand how the cemetery became such an integral part of Civil War history. Life is breathed into the shadows of the cemetery’s past. Additionally, the names of the Confederate soldiers buried there are known to only a very few and this book allows the reader to learn just who those men were. Never before has such an accurate compilation been published. Historians and genealogists will find this book a much-needed addition to Civil War literature. Modern-day descendants of those buried in the cemetery will find the book invaluable. Essential to anyone studying the Battle of Franklin.
