Short History of New Armuchee Baptist Cemetery

Contributed by Sharlyn Beth Shaw

There are 10 Confederate graves in New Armuchee Baptist Cemetery. These men lost their lives in the battle at Farmers Bridge, Armuchee Creek near the New Armuchee Baptist Cemetery. On May 15, 1864, 50 men of Captain William Lokeyís Company G of the 12th Alabama Battalion Partisan Rangers defended the bridge against 3,000 Union cavalrymen under the command of Colonel Robert H. G. Minty.

The Confederate soldiers killed in this battle are buried near the top of the cemetery. Markers and a plaque commemorating the battle were erected in November 1998. Historian Gilbert R. Smith identified the Confederate unit and those killed along with the location of their graves.
