About Gainesville Alabama
The Town of Gainesville, which was once among the largest towns in the State of Alabama, is home to several historical homes, churches, cemeteries, and monuments. Its history and heritage are still celebrated today through the Battle of Cuba Station Reenactment, which is held the second weekend of March each year. Reenactors from across the country gather to recreate historical clashes of the American Civil War. In honor of the brave soldiers that served during the great conflict, and indeed all American troops who have served our nation, two special memorial services are held. The first of these services is held on second Saturday of March at 10:30 a.m. in downtown Gainesville at the Nathan Bedford Forrest Monument. The second memorial service is held on the second Sunday at 10:30 a.m. in the Gainesville City Cemetery. It is the final resting place to over 120 Confederate soldiers from the Southeast who perished at or from wounds received during the April 1862 Battle of Shiloh in southwestern Tennessee.
