Hollywood Cemetery

Price: $25.00

Inspired by the international rural-cemetery movement, created amid controversy in the 1840s and 1850s, and challenged by the toll of the Civil War, Hollywood Cemetery is both an American and a southern landmark. Here lie United States presidents James Monroe and John Tyler as well as Confederate president Jefferson Davis. J. E. B. Stuart, George Pickett, and countless other southern officers and soldiers found their final rest in these grounds. Hollywood's early monuments reflect the eclectic tastes of the Victorian era, when the cemetery was a place of retreat and contemplation. Updated with a new dust jacket, illustrations, and foreword.
