It was a real thrill to visit Francis Scott Key's grave at last. I'd been wanting to do this for years and finally made it. Everyone should do so.

Beautiful, well kept cemetery. My grandmothers grave is here by the chapel. Behind that, at the edge are graves of civil war soldiers.

If you find graveyards interesting this is the place one must visit The civil war graves have their old tombstones and new one in back of them in one part of the cemetery
