Hollywood Cemetery, Richmond, VA – part 2 of 2

by Sherry Riter in Alyssa,Travel

A few more pictures of my little trip to Hollywood Cemetery as a continuation from yesterday’s post.

There is a large granite pyramid which was erected in 1869 as a memorial for more than 18,000 Confederate dead buried in the cemetery.
