Pictures from Hollywood Cemetary Richmond, Va

Hollywood Cemetary is a historical site in Richmond, Va. It still functions as a cemetary and people are still buried there but many historical figures lie there. Jefferson Davis, President of the Confederacy, JEB Stuart, Major General in the Confederate Army, and two Presidents, John Tyler and James Monroe are buried there.
