Where General Patrick Cleburne's remains rested until 1870

A comrade of Patrick Cleburne's described St. John's Episcopal Church Cemetery as "beautiful as the Garden of Eden -- seemingly a fit place for pure spirits to dwell, and for the haunts of angels." For nearly six years, the remains of the Confederate general -- who was killed at the Battle of Franklin (Tenn.) -- rested there among the among the oaks and magnolias. Let's explore the cemetery in rural Ashwood, Tenn.
