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. Gracefully written after a decade of research in original records, Hollywood Cemetery will interest readers throughout Virginia, the South, and the nation. Updated with a new dust jacket, illustrations, and foreword.
