These Boys in Gray died at or near Rome; most of them succumbed to wounds or disease in Rome hospitals, while some were killed in defending Rome against Sherman's army in May, 1864 and in skirmishes before and after that date. The dead soldiers sleep with their heads pointed toward the beautiful Coosa Valley and their feet pointed Northeastward toward Rome." p. 622 A History of Rome and Floyd County by George M. Battey
