Long Description:
The Hollywood Cemetery hold three presidents. Two of them were from the North (Monroe & Tyler) and one from the South (Davis). There are over 15,000 men buried here just from the confederate army. If you follow the blue line on the ground of the road, you are following the scenic/historical route. On this route you will see the presidents and some other historical sights. There are many monuments and memorials and as this is a cemetery please don't disturb them and be respectful as this is a cemetery and the people who died here gave the ultimate sacrifice to defend what they believed in was right. Most of the graves here are very old and that is what makes Hollywood Cemetery a rich place for history. There are people still being buried here today.
