Very large cemetery. Drove through it just to see the old and unique grave markers. Followed the narrow roads winding through it.

I love to drive through and see the CSA unknown soldiers' grave markers. It is also awe inspiring to believe so many of these grave sites are hundreds of years old. We saw stones where whole families died within two to three years of each other,. To think the stones are still readable and in such good condition this much later is hard to believe. History is a wonderful thing.

In this cemetery you can see the difference in headstones and famous Southerners from the early seventeenth century through today. The mausoleums, intricate headstones hand carved in Europe centuries ago show craftsmanship unavailable today.
It is a historians dream!

If you have the time to go you should, but get the cd so you know what you are looking at. We didn't know about it until afterwards and it would have been helpful. We did however enjoy ourselves.
