Loudon Park Cemetery


On June 6, 1862 Lt. Nicholas Snowden died at Harrisonburg, Virginia, being one of the first two Maryland Line officers to give their lives in battle in support of the Confederacy. Nicholas was first buried at the Union Church Cemetery on Port Republic Road. On July 28, 1884 his remains and headstone were removed from the Union Church Cemetery and transported to Baltimore, MD. He was re-interred at Loudon Park Cemetery, row E, grave number 55, in a section of the cemetery known as "Confederate Hill". To match the level of the other soldier's stones, his head marker was buried deep in the ground. A second marker was placed at confederate Hill, in remembrance of his service to the South.
