Montpelier Graveyard

As I mentioned in the post previous to this one, I decided to divide James Madison's Montpelier sampling into two groups: the mansion/grounds and the family graveyard.  This sampling is on the family graveyard on the property.

There were so many interesting gravestones.  From all sorts of different colors and sizes, to inscriptions and messages, and even broken gravestones laying on their sides (pictures show all of this below).  There was also a slave graveyard on the property.  Most of the graves of slaves were unmarked, but a few of them did have a single, white stone as a marker (see third picture from the bottom).

All in all, the family graveyard was incredibly interesting and I'm very pleased with how the pictures of it turned out.
