Post Card Tuesday: Nashville's National Military Cemetery



This cemetery which primarily contains the bodies of Union soldiers from the Civil War is located off of Gallatin Pk. in north Nashville, just north of Briley Parkway. The date on the cemetery gate is 1867, and several decades later, the postmark date on the post card in 1915. Today, the columns and arch of the main entrance are still there, but it's not used as an entrance anymore. The stone fence on either side of the entrance is now gone and cars enter on the right and leave on the left.

This is what it looks like today.
