Hollywood Cemetery in Richmond may be the most beautiful and important graveyard in America. We will close out the day with a visit to the gravesites of Generals, Presidents, and other Virginians of renown. We will learn powerful lessons that their lives teach us from the grave. Your visit will be an unforgettable one, whether at the plat of General J.E.B. Stewart or Historian Douglas Southall Freeman or novelist Ellen Glasgow, as we view their lives from a providential and biblical perspective.
Thursday’s tour will begin at a remote and beautiful Civil War fort in Charles City County—Fort Pocahontas. We will get a private tour of this little known battlefield that is only a mile from where military historian Bill Potter lived for eighteen years. The property is owned by Harrison Tyler, grandson of the 11th President of the United States. We will visit the grounds of his estate, Sherwood Forest, a picturesque home replete with the stores and the glories of the past two centuries and find out why John Tyler is Mr. Potter’s favorite President.
