The final resting place of several important Civil War veterans, including Brig. Gen. Benjamin Partridge, a Bay County sheriff who enlisted as a private, became a colonel and hero of Little Round Top at Gettysburg. Gen. Partridge received 28 of 71 Confederate battle flags surrendered at Appomattox. Another noteworthy burial is that of Major Lyman G. Willcox, lightning rod commander of the Third Michigan Cavalry, who stopped the war in 1862 in Lexington, Tennessee, called Confederates to a church and harangued the crowd for two-and-a-half hours on the madness of the rebellion.
