|Yes, the State Cemetery in Austin where many of the Texas heroes are buried. Some interesting juxtapositons on Republic Hill. Ben McCulloch lies alongside Barbara Jordan. The cemetery boasts the shortest highway in Texas and it runs past Johnston's tomb. John Wharton lies next to him, he was murdered by Col. John Baylor exactly three years to the day after Johnston died. All the veterans from the Texas Confederate home lie nearby. Susannah Dickinson, Edmund Davis, Stepen F. Austin, John Connally among others are buried on Republic Hill. It's a who's who of Texas history. There is a small museum in a building at the entrance that is an exact reproduction of the long barracks of the Alamo.
