“Marietta Confederate Cemetery is the largest Confederate cemetery south of Richmond and holds over 3,000 soldiers from every confederate state and MD, MO, and KY. It is adjacent to Marietta City Cemetery, the final resting place of 12-year old Mary Phagan, child worker in the pencil factory in Atlanta. She was found murdered in the basement of the factory at around 3 am, on April 27, 1913. After a sensational and controversial trial, Supervisor Leo Frank was convicted and sentenced to hang, later commuted to life in prison. Four weeks later, a mob entered the prison, seized and lynched Frank; no one was ever prosecuted. Mary Phagan has been memorialized in song, a movie and a musical.”
