Colonial Cemetery is Savannah's oldest city burial ground. Many famous Georgians are buried here. The most famous is Button Gwinnett (1735-1777). He was one of the original signors of the Declaration of Independence. His death was quite tragic, involving a duel set at 12 feet apart. Gwinnett died three days later due to his injuries.
Like most cemeteries, Colonial provides refuge for all types of wildlife. I watched Brown Thrashers run about the headstones while American Robins perched in the trees. The stump above drew my attention. I love old trees and this one lived a nice long life. Next time you're traveling, stop at a local cemetery and enjoy the solitude.
