Hide near a civil war cemetery


Recommended Posts

We geocached in Sparta,TN this past week-end, Had a blast!!!

It is so beautiful there.

We found a hide near a civil war cemetery, GCV9E7.

The graves have a concrete cover on them. Does any one know why the covers were placed on the graves?

There are lots of pictures of the graves in the gallery. Hide GCV9E7.

We found one in the Evergreen Cemetery in Gettysburg. There's a few soldiers buried there, along with a lot of the famous townspeople. It was a really nice walk to the cache and we found the grave of David Wills, whose house Abraham Lincoln stayed at when he went to Gettysburg to give the famous Address. :D


But yeah, Civil War artifacts may be hitting an all-time high in value, with the 150th anniversary and all. It's bad that people would rob graves for them, but hey, people'll do anything for money these days. :(
