[Mt. Olivet Cemetery, 1101 Lebanon Road, Nashville, Tennessee, October, 2009]
The Annual Confederate Cemetery Tour will be held on Saturday, October 9, at Nashvilleâ€™s Mt. Olivet Cemetery.
I would like to take this opportunity to invite any member of the JPG Family to attend as my guest. I am the guy selling the tickets, so please identify yourself when you arrive (if I donâ€™t already know you). The offer includes members of your immediate family.
The Cemetery Tour offers a treasure trove of photo opportunities.
It takes about 75 minutes to complete the tour. The first group will begin the tour at 4:30 P.M., with successive groups beginning the tour at 15-minute intervals. The last group will begin the tour at 8:30 P.M. Come early for the best shots, and then get in line with a group whenever you would like to.
Be sure to wear comfortable shoes and a light jacket or sweater. You may wish to carry a flashlight if touring after dark.
I hope to see you there.
I took this photo at last yearâ€™s tour. I like this photo because these boys â€“ all in their teens â€“ accurately depict the average Confederate soldier. Their uniforms are correct to a fault. And, they have a look of determination in their faces. The Cemetery Tour features dozens of soldiers and ladies in period costume.
Thank you for the spotlight, BB!
