Old Cahawba’s three cemeteries tell many stories. Imposing monuments of antebellum social and economic elite, plain memorial stones of Union army prisoners of war, and unmarked resting places of African-Americans all speak to the rich diversity of Alabama’s early state capitol. This tour visits cemeteries and explores the personal sagas of many who lived here before joining the community of perpetual residents.
