    In 1862, Dr. Charles Mann, then a surgeon in the Confederate Army, was ordered by Gen. Kirby Smith, to gather and care for the sick and wounded that had been left about Camp Dick Robinson. About eighty of these, he brought in private conveyances to Nicholasville, where they were nursed and cared for by the ladies of the community; those who died there were buried in the Nicholasville cemetery.
    After the war, Dr. Mann, with the aid of James S. McKenzie and Charles Oldham, gathered other Confederate dead, including those who had been buried in the Federal cemetery at Camp Nelson, and brought them to the cemetery at Nicholasville, where a lot had been generously donated by the Cemetery Company for that purpose.
    Dr. Chas. Mann, the president, was the surgeon of the Fifth Kentucky Confederate Infantry, and rendered distinguished services in the Army of Tennessee. He was frequently detailed to important positions, and returned from the war with highest commendations of his skill and efficiency as a surgeon and man, since which time he has practiced his profession in Jessamine County.

    The following is a list of the Confederate dead buried in the cemetery, in whose honor the monument was erected:

    John Martin, 30th Alabama
    A. L. Hale, 39th North Carolina
    Henry Rice, 426 Georgia
    W. H. Wallace, 6th Florida
    J. E. D. Morris. 6th Florida
    W. J. Hale, 40th Georgia

    Thanks so much for this story. My father was born in Nicholasville. My grandparents are buried in Maple Grove Cemetery in Nicholasville.
