Laurel Grove Cemetery in Savannah consists of two cemeteries, the north for white people and the south for slaves and free black people. The cemetery contains many graves of soldiers from the Civil War, along with a few noteworthy people we had been hearing about during our stay in Savannah. Once the Colonial Cemetery in the city filled up, Laurel Grove was established on the site of the former Springfield Plantation.
