Chickamauga Battlefield Hunt Cemetery Loop Professional Review and Guide

"During the War of 1812, Helm Hunt served in the South Carolina Militia and fought against the Creek Indians in what is now Alabama. For his service he received 280 acres of land on what is now part of the Chickamauga Battlefield. Hunt and several of his family members are buried in a small cemetery in the southernmost part of the battlefield; their graves date back to the late 1800s.

During the battle of Chickamauga, Helm Hunt’s home was used as a hospital. Nurse Kate Cumming wrote in her journal “That there had been fighting in Mr. Hunt’s yard, and many killed there.” Helm, who was born in 1789—the same year the U.S. Constitution was adopted—was buried in the cemetery in 1870."
