This was my first trip to the Natchez National Cemetery in Natchez, MS, this past Sunday. My friend's husband passed away in January and I made the trip with her to visit his grave. I took a few pictures to show you the cemetery.
Rows and rows of soldiers that were cremated in this section. When a wife dies she will have her name engraved on the back of her husband's tombstone, if she chooses to be cremated.
