About this item
Oakwood Cemetery evolved from a final resting place for Confederate soldiers to a modern “cemetery full of life,” reflecting over 150 years of the remarkable history of Raleigh, North Carolina. Many of the men and women who lived that history and developed this Southern capital—from soldiers and politicians to educators and clergy, from merchants and craftsmen to social activists and laborers—now rest in Oakwood, memorialized in the monuments that grace this lovely garden cemetery. Their stories, illustrated by archival and modern photographs, are told within this volume.
