A Strange Grave Site

I had told Marian and Bob that I wanted to visit the Union cemetery at the National Park and I also wanted to visit the Confederate Cemetery nearby. We grabbed Josh and headed over to the Cemetery. Bob said he had something very cool to show us there.
In the cemetery there are two Confederate soldiers buried.
They were identified after the war, but left there anyway.
Confederate graves have a slight triangular shape to the headstone and it took a while but we located them. On top of one of the headstones was a quarter from 2000.
Yes, we left it. You don't steal from the dead.
The joke here is that it takes 17,000 Yankees to guard 2 Confederates.
Here are some pics of us there.
