Old Headstones

Another series of headstones from an old cemetery. Part of a never ending supply (or close to it).

In this location a large number of old stones have begun to fall and crumble. Off in the background is a military section, confederate soldiers from the Gettysburg battles are buried here.

Many sites are marked by low carved stones placed along the lines of what I assume to be the coffins. However they do appear to be small.

A walk through these old cemeteries is also a lesson of both local and national history.
