This is just what it looks like to drive down the street in Savannah. It's pretty amazing.
We went to several cemeteries. The colonial Park cemetery is the oldest one in Savannah. It doesn't have all the interesting monuments, but it still has some interesting history.
It's nice to know that modern medicine helps us not die by the droves as in years past.
There were several interesting graves of those who fought in the American revolution.
There were several large brick mausoleums.
Some old tombstones.
One of the signers of the declaration of independence is buried here.
This was some interesting history.
During the revolution, the British took Savannah. Some of the troops camped in the cemetery. They took down some of the headstones and marked them up. Afterwards, not knowing where they were supposed to go, they were put on the wall .
One of my good friends just started a blog and I didn't really get it. I have kept a journal for years and was not sure that a more "public" journal was something that held any interest for me. I have found, however, that I have enjoyed reading her posts and commenting on them. I have started reading other blogs and am finally coming "up to speed" and seeing some value in the process of sharing thoughts in a way that is unique from both conversation and journaling but somehow a combination of both. Welcome to my blog!
