A Little Cemetery Off Of Black Road In Lisbon

I am sure you have been to a cemetery and saw the markers put on a veterans grave like this. They are made of bronze and denotes what war the veteran fought in. This one represents World War 2. In this little cemetery there are several graves marked with this.
The problem is that most of the veterans in this cemetery died in the 1800's. I believe they are actually veterans of the Civil War.
So now I am on a mission to find out why there are World War 2 markers on Civil War Veteran graves.
I haven't discovered if it is haunted yet. Perhaps one night next week we might go check it out.
It is picturesque and very serene. The view from there is also very beautiful.
I am headed to the library later today to see if I can find out the name of it and some history on it. If you know anything let me know.

I'm so happy when I see others who want to know more about the markers and what they mean. When I first came to AZ, I found a lot of ones that looked like a tree that had been cut down. They represented "Woodmen of the World." It always makes me think about how to condense my human experience into words and symbols--not an easy task.

I have a book called STORIES IN STONE by Douglas Keister. It does not have everything in it that I have seen and I can't wait to look at the link you left to see what is there. Thank You!!
