Members please feel free to post any cemetery or grave pictures you might have that you have visited on your civil war journeys. It's always good to post photos you never know someone might be kin to the person's grave you have a picture of. Me myself I just alwyays enjoy seeing photos of different graves from the Government markers to some of the elaborate graves I have visited a few myself. If you need photos of a certain grave and a member is willing to take pictures of that grave that could be nice as well.

Here's a good one from the cemetery where I volunteer (Jacksonville, Oregon). Thomas was Canadian but left between 1848 and 1860, ending up in Maniteau, Missouri. He volunteered for the Navy in 1862 and served as carpenter on the crew of the gunboat Cincinnati during the capture of Fort Henry. He was also in the Battle of Plum Point Bend where he commanded mortar boat No. 16. In addition, he also served on the sternwheeler Juliet, the single-screw steamer ram Little Rebel (a captured confederate vessel), and the single-screw steamer St. Clair, all as acting lieutenant. Little could be found about what he did after the war but he made his way to Oregon some time after 1875 so as to live with his son in his old age. Quite a journey.

There are many posts on this web forum of the Confederate Cemetery at Okolona, MS. However, these soldiers did not die in the Battle of Okolona, 22 February 1864.

On the road from Okolona to Ponotoc, there is a group of headstones of Union soldiers who fell during their retreat. This is located on Hiway 41 very close to where the Natchez Trace Parkway overpass.
