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 lives during this era of the early 1800's. It's shaded with a few benches. I'm not certain I'd pay for a your. I was happy meandering by myself among the tombs in this historical site.

As with most cemeteries around Savannah they are all filled with history and beauty. The history that is on the signs around the cemetery are full of awesome information that any history buff like myself would find fascinating. My 9 year old son enjoyed it, but also said it was a little creepy in some parts.

The reason for the 4 star instead of the 5 star is that this cemetery does not beat out Bonaventure Cemetery. If you enjoy these types of places make sure to head out to Bonaventure Cemetery as well!

If you have any interest whatsoever in cemeteries or the Civil War, this is a beautiful and very historic cemetery. My husband and I wondered around in there for hours.
