11-11-09 A Snowy Blanket

I drove through the cemetery this past January after a fresh blanket of snow. I have always been fascinated by the arrangement of the monuments in the military section of cemeteries. At the Mt. Hope Cemetery in Watertown, there are monuments that date back to the 19th century, and many wars are represented by the veterans buried here.

  2. You should see the military exhibit at the Codington County Heritage Museum. Also, in their photo archives, there are photographs of Mt. Hope Cemetery when the trees are really small from a few decades ago, centered around the veterans section. I also think there’s a horse buried in Mt. Hope, but I don’t know much else about it.
