Walking Between Enemy Lines in Louisville, Kentucky
Among the elaborate mausoleums erected by the Victorians as a symbol of their wealth, rest rows of symmetrically positioned small, white stone rich in history. Cave Hill Cemetery is the final resting place for soldiers who fought against change and their antagonists. Union and Confederate soldiers rest side by side in peace—most of the Union soldiers unknown but respected as a part of Kentucky’s history. The silence that the rows emit allows the mind to create stories and bring life to a name or the unnamed. Not only do the opposing soldier’s stories haunt the land but mysteries of a cave and historical buildings also inhabit this 300-acre cemetery. Guided tours are given to those wanting to walk among the symmetrical rows of white and dwell upon the past through stories that make the small stones monumental.
