The Ultimate Price

While we were out in Marblehead last week, I was directed toward a nondescript street and told to pay $2 to enter the gate.  The road led to a small, historic Cemetery called Johnson Island Confederate Memorial.  There are many gravestones here, many of which are still unmarked, of Southern soldiers who died during the Civil War.

This is the statue that marks the northern entrance to the grounds.  There is a group that is working, through DNA and genetic marker testing, to identify these unknown soldiers.  War is never good and it is never civil.  Have a good day.
