Macon cemetery

This week the posts will focus on sites around Macon, Georgia. I spent an enjoyable day there as we worked our way back to Atlanta (completing a loop that also saw stops at Chattanooga/Chickamauga, Rome, Columbus, Andersonville, and Irwinville).

Of course we visited the local Confederate cemetery, which is in Rose Hill Cemetery. The local ladies have been decorating these graves since April 1866.

Its a neat old cemetery that has been around since 1840. It is also the final resting place for two original members of the Allman Brothers, Duane Allman and Berry Oakley. Both were killed in motorcycle accidents in Macon, three blocks and roughly a year apart.
