The Texas State Cemetery was established in 1851 with the burial of Edward Burleson. The southeast section of the cemetery has historically been referred to as the Confederate Fields. More than 2, 200 Confederate veterans and their wives are buried here, including Gen. Albert Sydney Johnston. The general's metal Gothic-style tomb and white marble recumbent statue were designed and carved by noted sculptor Elisabet Ney in 1902. Along with Johnston, other Civil War notables buried in the cemetery are Brig. Gens. William Polk Hardeman, Adam Rankin "Stovepipe" Johnson, Ben McCulloch, William Read Scurry, and Maj. Gen. John Austin Wharton.
