Confederate Memorial Cemetery

With a little extra time on hand this weekend, I went backroading in search of some new subjects. I came across this nearly hidden memorial cemetery in a small town named Keachi. The Battle of Mansfield was fought on these grounds in the American civil war. There are a few remaining graves from that 1860s battle, a few modest bricks stacked at the base of pine trees in some instances. The families of the fallen soldiers continue to look after the grounds, and some years ago raised the above stones commemorating those who died in the battle. The plot is surrounded by towering trees, creating a canopy that rendered some great natural lighting.
