Discovered this grave today. it is overgrown with grass and soil.  However, the word and date struck me. The civil war was on. My imagination told me this was the grave of a loved one that had fallen and their wish was for peace. It moved me.

That stone should be cleared off, and the words exposed again.

Good find, Charles.

Good find, Charles.

 

I'm with Art on this.  That grave looks like it has a story that is just waiting to be told.

 

Nice work, Charles.  :)

Same here, James. This is a Catholic cemetery, so I was surprised at the condition of some of the graves.
