these pictures are absolutely beautiful. i am a cemetery buff. i love to walk through old cemeteries and see the stories they tell. we had one where i am from (small town in lousiana), where the main part of the cemetery is ornate and magnificent. there is a small fence which separates that part from what has become the forest. if you walk into the forest, you’ll note countless marked and unmarked graves, sometimes with nothing more than a rock to memorialize the dead. these are the graves of the slaves of the town in years past. what a stark and sad reminder of the ways of the past.
As an alum of MSMS, I recommend anyone, with even a remote interest in history, make the trip to Columbus at least once for Tales From the Crypt in Friendship Cemetery. Certainly worth the time.
That’s were my deceased family members rest. Always make it a point to pay my respects when I’m up that way. Beautiful place with a lot of history, situated on the banks of the old Tombigbee River.
Beautiful cemetery. Home of the first Memorial Day circa 1866.
