There are no markers on the graves nor are the graves identified in any way, but in the little Point Clear Cemetery "Confederate Rest" there is a memorial to the 300 COnfederate soldiers whose bodies were placed there a hundred years ago. The soldiers died in the hospital located in 1862-64 at Point Clear (Grand) Hotel, and allthe records were lost when the hotel burned.

Although the Confederates were buried over all the original seven-acre cemetery, the wooden markers over their graves have long since disappeared. In 1928 a Confederate enclosure of 80 feet by 100 feet was built of cement by the Eastern Shore Confederate Memoorial Association. Inside the white enclosure, with its archway lettered "Confederate Dead", is a cannon on which is a plaque reading "In memory of the unknown heroes who gave their lives in the War Between the States, 1861 - 65". This work has been accomplished by the Eastern Shore Confederate Memorial Association, Mrs. T.P. Norville, president; Arthur F. Hutchings Chairman.

Miss Grace Hutchings of Mobile, a daughter of the late Arthur Hutchings, said the old Confederate cannon was placed at Confederate Rest sometime after 1921. It was obtained from Ft. Morgan. There are more recent graves, and many wooden markers on which the names are no longer visible are throughout the cemetery. (Written by Doris Rich April 1964)
