Marianna Cemetery

As interesting as we found the soldiers at the Battle of Marianna re-enactment, we really found the cemetery at St. Luke's fascinating. It was the site for the main battle.

There are some very old graves in the cemetery. This is the grave of the former governor of Florida during the Civil War, John Milton.

This soldier died in the battle, as indicated by the date.

This sign chronicles the church buildings that have been built on this site.

The interior of the present church is lovely.

The Bible contained in this case was rescued from this church twice during fires. The first time was during the battle.
