Generalís grave, Magnolia Cemetery, Charleston, South Carolina, 2013

Magnolia is called the ďCity of the Silent.Ē Its history provides a chronicle of Charlestonís rise and fall. Many leaders of the South are buried here, including five Confederate generals and more than 1700 Confederate soldiers. One of those generals, Arthur Manigault, lies beneath this slab, along with his wife, Mary Huger. Although he was wounded twice, he survived the war and returned to South Carolina to manage his rice plantation. More than 125 after his death, General Manigault and his wife are still remembered here. A pair of Confederate flags rest at the foot of the tomb.
