Savannah has a fascinating collection of cemeteries.  Colonial Cemetery is the oldest established in 1750. In 1820 the Yellow Fever epidemic killed 666 people who are buried there. The 666 is symbolic of the devil so officially they list 700 as the buried total.

Bonaventure Cemetery (1846) is more like a sculpture museum. It is a beautiful cemetery with many sculptures and headstones.

Laurel Cemetery (1852) is a segregated cemetery. The North is for whites and the South is for slaves and free people of color.

Catholic Cemetery (1853) is a cemetery for Catholics.

At the end of the gallery I added some images from Madison Memorial Cemetery and Greensboro City Cemetery.
