The Confederate cemetery is a place of honor and beauty. I love to walk among the graves and think about the sacrifices these great men made for their beliefs and homeland.

Took my brother and sister-in-law there and walked around. It is small and very historical. We were on a hunting trip of ancestors that fought in the Civil War.

Beautiful, serene, peaceful. A piece of history not to be missed on so many levels. No judgements... Only love and respect for the sacrifices made. Not to be missed... And take your kids so they understand the value of standing for what you believe.
