A Little Corner of Evergreen Cemetery

I just love Evergreen Cemetery in Bloomington.  It’s an older cemetery, with many trees, and is very peaceful.  Back in the far northeast corner, in the Old City Section, is a small lot where approximately 70 U.S. military veterans are buried.  Many of these veterans served prior to the Civil War; a handful served after.   It’s hard to say if these folks died while serving our country.  Regardless, they did serve in one way or another and deserve to be recognized, honored, and remembered.

This is indeed a beautiful setting for the ones buried in Evergreen Cemetery. I love the curbing surrounding them and the decorative pieces on the stone at the step. Thanks for sharing this place with us. All of them do deserve our debt of gratitude and our remembering them.
