This cemetery is a haven of quiet in Charleston.For a place of rest for the dead,it is full of living history,especially for those interested in the Civil War,The Hunley,and the great and the good of Charleston.I found the monuments dedicated to the three crews of the Hunley very interesting indeed,as we had also been to see the Hunley itself.The grounds are well maintained,but not immaculate,nor should they be.It might seem odd to say,but it has a comfortable and lived in feeling (again sorry !!!).My wife and I had a very relaxing couple of hours meandering through the Cemetery,and taking shade under the trees,beside the local residents !!.Well worth a visit if you are anywhere in the Charleston area.
