Name: Raymond Confederate Cemetery (by Rebecca Blackwell Drake)

"The Confederate Cemetery has 140 graves of soldiers mortally wounded in the Battle of Raymond, May 12, 1863. The Civil War soldiers, mostly from Tennessee and Texas, died in private residences around the town that served as hospitals. A few probably died of sickness while stationed in the area or died of wounds from various local skirmishes or nearby battles such as Champion's Hill. Those that were killed outright on the battlefield of Raymond were reported to have been buried where they fell by Union soldiers."

None of ours listed.
