Confederate Cemetery of Lewisburg reviews
Interesting enough. Well kept and pretty area, but I wish there were more information on the historical significance. I feel like I don’t know more than before even after visiting.
Beautiful place (very offbeaten path) serene and a great way of preserving history.
