Just east of Savannah, Georgia is Bonaventure Cemetery, a genuine Southern treasure. Located on a small bluff beside the Wilmington, River, Bonaventure is a magnificent final resting place. Numerous Confederates and other Southern soldiers and leaders are buried in the public cemetery. Ancient oaks, covered in Spanish moss, palmetto trees and other lush greenery give it a unique and live feeling. I visited Bonaventure last year and took the following pictures which SF readers may enjoy. This magnificent cemetery is a testament to the rich heritage of the Southern people and natural beauty of our native land.
