The Marietta National Cemetery is only a few miles from our home,
and in honor of Memorial Day, I decided to visit...with my camera...
The cemetery was established in 1866 and is now home to nearly 19,000
soldiers. Today there were nearly 19,000 US Flags flying.
The land was donated by a local resident, Henry Cole. His idea was
that by burying together those who had fallen together in battle, it
might help foster a kind of peace....
I don't know anything about Frank Gibson or Thomas Hankinson or
Phillip Childers, but I'm so thankful for their love of freedom!
