The Groveton Confederate Cemetery, ca. 1930. The obelisk monument, placed in 1904 by the Bull Run Chapter of the United Daughters of the Confederacy to serve as the focal point of the Groveton Confederate Cemetery, can be seen in the center of the photograph. Manassas National Battlefield Park did not acquire the cemetery until 1973. The monument includes the inscription "Dulce et decorum est pro patria more," translated roughly to "It is sweet and right to die for your country."
