CSA


This is a Confederate Soldiers Grave Marker. The marker was patterned after the design on the Southern Cross Of Honor medal. CSA stands for the Confederate States of America. The old Confederate flag is in the center. It is located near a grave in Old City Cemetery near downtown Tallahassee.

Hi Lois, What a marvelous history lesson! I did not know about the Confederate Soldiers Grave Markers. I will be sure to look for them in the future. Thank's for teaching me something new, you know what they say... use it or loose it :D

The most amazing cemetery I've seen is the Jewish Cemetery in Prague. If you haven't been there, maybe you like to check it on my travel blog under Czech Republic.

By the way our cemeteries are similar to the one in Buenos Aires; if you want to take a look too, check under Argentina to see Eva Peron's grave.

Nick had a ggg grandfather on the North and one on the South, their children married. It truly was a war of brother against brother.
