The workshop will take place in the historic Spring Hill Cemetery – the oldest, most historic, large, publicly-owned cemetery in and about the city. Its heritage stems from the early 19th century. Along with being the resting place of one Confederate General, Albert Gallatin Jenkins, and one Union General, John Hunt Oley, Spring Hill Cemetery contains six Veteran sections. There is an African-American Veterans section, Soldiers Field, Soldiers Rest, the Union section, the Confederate section, and a newly-developed Veterans’ Companion section for Veterans and their spouses. Spring Hill Cemetery also represents many cultures and religious beliefs. Situated on the grounds’ northwest promontory is the Marshall Memorial dedicated in 1971 to those who passed away in the tragic 1970 Marshall football team plane crash.
