There is something so peaceful and calm about a National Cemetary. The headstone are all lined up like the soldiers they are standing guard over. My Daddy is buried here so it has a special place in my heart.
I visited on a Sunday to find my GGGGrandfather's grave who was a Union soldier during the War Between the States and died in 1864. He is one of four in my family who fought for the Union out of close to 20 ancestors who fought during the war. Being as the majority were Confederates, this ancestor was often overlooked... 更多

I have gone by this cemetery since I was just a little girl going to visit my grandparents. We never stopped at it but I always admired it as we drove by. Now that I'm ALOT older I see the beauty in it even more. A friend and my mom and I drove by it on Memorial Day and my... 更多
