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.

I have never seen so many historic markers in one place. You could spend all day here just reading the markers. These were people that made our country great.

Wonderful place to visit. The history here is amazing. Some tombstones are so old that time and the elements wore off any engraving. It's a free, small cemetery. Easily accessible and within walking distance in the historic part of town. What was amazing to me were the headstones lined up on the wall and the history behind it as well as the elaborate and old tombstones. A must see.

This cemetery is awesome. I could not get over the beauty and history of this cemetery. I especially liked the tombstones placed upon the wall by the citizens of Savannah after the Civil War. Very interesting!
