Today’s Photo: Rows Among the Trees
Visiting a normal cemetery is not the same as visiting a military cemetery. Yes, there is still lots of history and many stories behind the people under each headstone. However, there are not many cemeteries that can match the orderliness. There are row upon row of headstones, with most of them being the same size, shape and similar script writing on each. One of the things I noticed that was different about the Marietta National Cemetery was how it was laid out. Most military cemeteries have nice orderly lines of headstones in even rows and columns. This was different, the rows were all spaced neatly, but instead of being in straight lines, they circled around the trees. It was obvious where a tree had fallen, because there was an empty circle around which the headstones ran.
