Unforgotten



This is a wall at the back of the old Colonial Cemetery in Savannah, which dates back to the eighteenth century. The cemetery was closed to new burials before the Civil War, but when Sherman invaded the city he quartered some of his troops there. Unfortunately they desecrated many of the headstones and graves. After the war the city did their best to put it to rights, and the headstones that couldn't be matched to the proper grave were placed on the wall.
