Troops were recruited by both sides during the war. After the war, veterans returned home to resume their lives and many were buried in the many cemeteries in the county.

Calhoun, Calhoun Cemetery.

Many Union and Confederate soldiers are buried in this cemetery, including four African-Americans who served in the Union Army.

Sacramento, Methodist Cemetery.

George Mayes, one of the Union soldiers killed in the Battle of Sacramento, is buried here as is Molly Morehead, the young woman who warned Nathan Bedford Forrest that Union troops were at Sacramento immediately before the battle.
