Rerun: Oakland Cemetery, Atlanta, 2011

In October we think of cemeteries.  The mother of all cemeteries around here is Oakland Cemetery on Memorial Drive in Atlanta.    Historically it is an idea place to soak up some Atlanta History.  From one little hill that offers an excellent view of Atlanta, and is the same spot General Hood watched the burning of Atlanta by Sherman.  Over the wall, is where James Andrews of Andrews Raiders (Great Locomotive Chase) was hung.  Margaret Mitchell is buried there and other Georgia Nobles.
There are a lot of activities at Oakland going on this month.   Tours, strolling musicians, and even food trucks.

This video I made a few years ago but it is probably the same there, time doesn't move on in a cemetery.
