When the Civil War broke out in 1861, soldiers from the South who were stationed at Camp Floyd were released from the US Army. General Albert Sidney Johnson marched eastwards in April. In July, a second group of 40 men, led by General Phillip Cooke marched east to join the Confederate Army. When they reached this spot, they were caught in a freak snowstorm, and six men and a 14-year-old boy froze to death. They are buried in this cemetery. The flag is the first style flown by the Confederacy in 1861.
