JACKSON COLLEGE/OLD BRICK CHURCH CEMETERY-DENNING ROAD, MAURY COUNTY, TENNESSEE


A view looking at the
Jackson College Cemetery at the
memorial to Confederate Captain B. H. Holland who died in the Stones River battle near Murfreesboro Tennessee. Notice the large Red Oak Tree. This is actually the northeast corner of the cemetery. Most of the cemetery is behind us. The Confederate Flag was posted by a mystery person but was most likely put there by Dr. Julia Ashley on one of her annual visits to this cemetery. She is a descendent of the Dunlaps and Stephens interred in this cemetery and an avid historian dedicated to the preservation of this cemetery and its history.
It is proper that Confederate flag be displayed on this memorial. Captain Holland died in Battle near Murfreesboro (Stones River) while serving gallantly as a colors (flag) bearer for the Confederates. The base of the stone lies to the right of the main part. Red Oaks grow pretty fast so the tree might not be more than 130 years old.
