Sherman's Gravesite and Willie 12-4-12

Yesterday Bill Sheridan and I drove to North St Louis where his grandfather and grandmother are buried in Belfontaine Cemetary. Then we drove next door to the Catholic Calgary Cemetary. It is here that General William Tecumseh Sherman of Civil War fame is buried with his family. Finding the site was a fun treasure hunt.

Also  in the family plot is Willie, Sherman's son who died
of typhoid  fever in Memphis:


Sherman's men had this monument built. Of interest is the left upper ledge. 

Bill and I agreed that we should go hunting for sites in cemetary's more often.
