I'm always touring old cemetaries every single city I visit. We walked through here on the way to mass while visiting and it's a great piece of history. Definitely worth checking out, it's small and a quick see.

Quiet, deadly quiet! Not much to say about a cemetery. It was very well kept and clean--as is the entire city!

Located in the center of town, it's an easy place to visit. Worth your time. Clear signage and information on the people buried there.

The cemetery is full of history of both the confederacy and the union occupation under Sherman. Many of the stones are no longer readable, but understanding history of Savannah helps to understand the cemetery.
