Tim that is the Church. We drove all over the cemetery although my friend's car bottomed out several times. We visted the different graves . I have trouble walking so we didn't do as much walking around as I would have liked. We didn't get into the Church. I am hoping another trip will allow me to do that as I hear there are Tiffany windows in the church. Some pics of Blandford Cemetary. click on the image below to view.
I love the town of Petersburg. The first time I visited I spend some time in the old town . I also went out to City Point and was lucky enough to visit with a woman and a young man who was portraying a house slave . I was the only one out there for their presentation so had the chance to ask all kinds of questions. The young man was a college student studying preservation . His goal was to buy an old platation , restore it and live in it. I wished him luck. He was so valuable to talk to . He has whole sections of the diary of the owner of the plantation there memorized. a diary that is not published. This young man really knew what was going on during the siege . I feel lucky to have met him.
I should have had your map though Tim I got lost so many times on that trip .
