Oak Grove Cemetary


Oak Grove Cemetary in Brunswick is the resting place of more than 100 Union and Confederate soldiers. The information does not specify how many Union soldiers are buried here but Confederate flags flapped in the breeze over many a still grave. The soldiers there rest in peace under their flags while, across the street, the minority-filled public housing project vibrates with childrens’ voices, music and cars coming and going. Do the children come across, occassionally, to look down on the graves? Do they feel the past is strange? Do they feel the future is bright?

    >Thanks, Laura. We thought of you while looking around St Mary's and we even ran into Emma's B&B you mentioned. I'm off to your other former home, Atlanta, for a two-day conference this week. Hope all's well with you!
