I love old cemeteries, and this is a good one. Soldiers who died in the Civil War are here as well as those who survived. The road meanders up a hill to some of the oldest plots. It is still active, and well maintained.

Prettiest cemetery I think I've ever seen. Beautiful views and filled with history from confederate soldiers from the Battle of Helena

I always wonder about the Confederates - how were they treated, what is/was their stories, and where were they buried. This cemetery is very respectable for those who died for what they believed in.
