This project was undertaken to provide the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs National Cemetery Administration with a cultural landscape survey of Marietta National Cemetery. The 23-acre cemetery is located within the city limits of Marietta, Georgia, and contains more than 17,300 burials. Marietta National Cemetery was placed on the National Register of Historic Places on 18 September 1998, as part of a multiple-property nomination for Civil War Era National Cemeteries. The National Cemetery Administration tasked the U.S. Army Engineer Research and Development Center-Construction Engineering Research Laboratory ERDC-CERL to inventory and assess the cultural landscape at Marietta National Cemetery through creation of a landscape development context, a description of current conditions, and an analysis of changes over time to the cultural landscape. All landscape features were included in the survey because according to federal policy on National Cemeteries, all national cemetery landscape features are considered to be contributing elements.
