Lost in time, nestled under the pine trees in DeSoto Parish, is the Confederate Memorial Cemetery. After the battle of Mansfield, Keachie College was turned into a hospital to care for the wounded. The 2nd floor was made into a morgue.
I stopped there today to get these pictures to share with you. White irises were blooming at several places in the cemetery, leaving that sickly sweet smell hanging in the air, that smell that we associate with death.
