Found on a walk, in a dark corner of a cemetery. Thick Oaks, covered in Spanish Moss let very little light in.
This is all that is left of the marker. No writing is visible. It sits in a spot off the path. Streaks of sun gave it’s hiding spot away.
Behind a marble stone sits this military marker. It is called the Cross Of Honor. The dates 1861-1865 are on the front. At first the were provided by a confederate organization after the war, however now they can be ordered from the US Veterans Affairs for any southern military provided headstones. This appears to be one of the older ones.
I found no name here, just the age of the child. Again, this was in a far corner of this cemetery. A story lost here.
Photographed at Magnolia Cemetery, Charleston, SC.
A quiet place to visit while we are maintaining a safe distance from each other. Ironic since many cemeteries around here first opened during the 1856 yellow fever epidemic.
