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.

And some soldier’s were never identified after the battle and are buried in graves with just a number on them.

 

The next two photos are of Major General Jeb Stuart’s grave:

For those who have never been to the United States, I’m taking photos of where I live and posting them. 

Arcadia 9212013

This is the Arcadia restaurant in downtown.

This picture of the Ashland train station shows evidence of the Jim Crow era of the country. If you note there were two entrance doors to the station. One side was the ‘colored’ side and the other was for the ‘whites.’ Inside the station, which has been converted to a visitor’s center, the ticket offices were connected by a short hallway and were closed off on the ‘colored’ side by glass and bars.

This is a shot from the southern side of Downtown Ashland looking south along the former RF&P railroad. Things are busy with a flow of CSX freight trains and Amtrak passenger trains.  Close to 30-40 trains a day rumble through this little town.

Richmond Farmer's Market 9212013

This is a small section of the Downtown Farmer’s Market. Felt a little sketchy even though it is one of the oldest in the state. Next time I’ll do some of the rural ones.

An image looking at the Richmond skyline from the east side of town. In the next couple weeks I’ll add some from the west side and the Fan area.

Corn was harvested up here recently. They’ll probably plant another crop to be chopped up-stalk and all-to make cattle feed.
