FRANKFORT CEMETERY

Frankfort, Franklin County, Kentucky

The Frankfort Cemetery, in our beautiful state capital city, is a lovely place for a walk, a jog – but especially nice for a little genealogy hunt!  Let’s see who we found!

Our Confederate Dead

1861-1865

‘They sleep, what need to question now, if they were right or wrong.  They know ere this whose cause was just in God the father’s sight.  They wield no warlike weapons now, return no foeman’s thrust.  Who but a coward would revile an honored soldier’s dust.’

In the above picture you can see individual Confederate soldiers graves, circling the large monument.  More in a later post about these soldiers!

The Frankfort Cemetery is located on a high bluff above the beautiful Kentucky River!  Notice our capital building in the background on the right!  I think you need to visit one day!
