Cleburne's final resting place

Patrick Cleburne was initially buried at St. John's Episcopal Church near Mount Pleasant, Tennessee. He has commented on the beauty of the place just days before his death at Franklin. After 6 years though it was decided that he should be moved to his adopted hometown of Helena, Arkansas.

He now has a very nice monument that lists some of his better battles. His old headstone was also moved at the time.

Pat is my favorite general and I look forward to visiting his grave soon. He was exactly right about St. John's Church, the place is almost worth dying to be buried there.
