Veterans Day in the South

This Veterans Day we took a field trip to the local Hollywood Cemetery (named for the numerous Holly Berry Trees, not the famous city in CA) where approximately 18,000 Confederate soldiers are buried.
This is one of many graves we saw that had the Confederate flag. So many of these soldiers were barely 20 years old.

This monument to the Confederate women was amazing:

Built in 1869.
Gabriel, our friend Kaili and Cali can be seen at the bottom.
The cemetery is huge and needless to say, we got lost. After more than 3 hours we found our exit and left a much more humble group.
Thank so much to all who serve our country and preserve our freedoms!
