Civil War Graves, Port Gibson, Mississippi-Photo101, Edge & Alignment

In the heart of the South, the Mississippi town of Port Gibson saw major battles in the Civil War and the loss of many lives. These graves of Confederate soldiers, many of whom were teenagers, lie in the Wintergreen Cemetery. They lie under a canopy of Spanish moss, looking old and timeless and sad.  I have visited this cemetery, which is on the National  Register of Historic Places, several times and can never escape its quiet, haunted feeling.
