Graves of unknown Confederate soldiers, Hollywood Cemetery, Richmond, VA

This was taken at a time of great heightened feelings about Confederate statues and the Confederate flag. I walked the section of the cemetery devoted to the unknown soldiers, struck both by the numbers of them and the care with which their graves were attended to. It all felt both heroic and appalling.
