My friend and I traveled to this cemetery to find the grave of his great-great grandfather, who fought (and died) for the South during the American Civil War. (1860 - 1864).

Excellent! It really adds to the photo that there's a size reference with that person standing next to the cemetry.

Thanks, people. That's my friend whose great-great grandfather is buried approximately where I'm standing.
