Hugh’s Weekly Photo Challenge: Week 20 – Solitude

Homeless Headstones

Colonial Cemetery, Savannah, Georgia

Colonial Cemetery, Savannah, Georgia

 

Last week I spent a few days in Savannah, Georgia, a lovely town full of southern charm and history. Colonial Cemetery, established in 1750, became a city park in 1896. The cemetery was already closed to burials before the start of the US Civil War. But the war did leave its mark on the cemetery. Union troops used the cemetery grounds during the occupation of Savannah and many of the grave sites were disturbed and many of the headstones no longer marked graves. Headstones no longer identified with a specific grave were installed along one of the cemetery walls.
