This cemetery closed in 1853 so it's OLD. There's good paths with signage to tell you who's buried in the crypts, howerver the most interesting tombstones are along the back wall where they were placed after General Sherman's men broke them off to make room...More

Very historical cemetery. For history buffs, indeed worth a visit. See the monuments located at edge along wall. I believe they were moved by Union soldiers to make space for camping there. Read about it before stopping by.

Spend a few minutes to read the historical markers and you have a better appreciation for the people of that time and their accomplishments.

Lots of history. You can view signs left of people buried here. Also, the markers are not what you'd view in a recent cemetery. Certainly, many tell a story of one's life and a time long ago forgotten. The Great Yellow Fever took many young...More
