The Longest Road


These photos are from the
Confederate Cemetery in Fredericksburg, VA
The headstone above was one of thousands...

To think this young man
WALKED
all the way from Louisiana
to die in VA


This monument is for all the unknown soldiers
that died on the battlefields of Fredericksburg


The cemetery was founded in 1860



It was odd to be surrounded by so much history,
to be so engrossed in imagining what the city streets
must have looked like,
with Union and Confederate soldiers everywhere
and then to stumble upon someone's backyard
and their lovely pool...
