Tombstone Tuesday - Slave Cemetery
Next to a subdivision and golf course in Kennesaw, GA, is a small, fenced-off cemetery. I have driven past it for years, but only recently found out that this is the cemetery where the slaves of the Stanley farm were buried. From what I have read, no one realized this cemetery existed until the homes and golf course were going to be built and it was found on old maps of the area. A group of individuals built a fence around it and the burial sites are marked with small crosses. While the cemetery is at the corner of a busy intersection, it is sectioned off and sits in a nice wooded area.
