Photograph of graves inside the walls of the Marietta Military Cemetery. Its a very surreal place, with what seems like miles and miles of identical white headstones. What really “got me” was the age at which many of these soldiers were killed in the line of duty. Its very sad when country feels the need to send mere children into battle, only to come home maimed, mutilated, or worse, dead. My afternoon at this cemetery was VERY emotional and its only now that I am able to edit the rest of the photos I shot back in January, 2012.
