  • Well kept grounds and this cemetary lot of history not dealing with the civil war.
  • This site is free and work a work stop. The memorial is at the center of this humbling and well maintained cemetery. The inscription is very well done and honors a great military mind. If you're in Lexington, definitely stop in to see this memorial; it will only take you 10-15 minutes to see the whole cemetery.
