Description

Cemetery is named for the camping area of Union soldiers who traveled through the area during and after the Civil War. Cemetery was donated in three separate sections. Original land was donated by Mattie Stevens. The second area was donated by the Nicely family. The last and most recent was donated by the Gebhardt family. Union ridge road used to pass through the cemetery before the second and third additions were donated, however, due to the steep incline of the hill the road was moved to its current position. The reason being the Model-A and T vehicles could not climb the hill because the steepness caused the vehicles to stall due to the fuel moving to the rear of the tank, causing a stall.
