A beautiful, well-kept cemetery honoring the fallen soldiers of the Confederacy. It is sad to think that 2/3 of the graves here are unmarked so their families never knew what happened to their loved ones. So many lives lost on both sides.................

It was very interesting to see all the graves. The oldest one we found died in 1801. The confederate graves were old, unreadable and/or breaking apart. Looks like the caretakers are trying to repair and/or fix those.

On the trolley tour you will hear about the cemetery. At Memorial Day, the town puts a Confederate flag of each grave. (Flag is not meant as a symbol of hate but a part of the history of the area).
