October 30 was a cool, clear and very pleasant evening to visit the grand necropolis on the outskirts of Charleston.
By Green Taxis (some students drove themselves or carpooled) we arrived just after 5:15 p.m. Time was of the essence, as sunset, this final week before Daylight Savings Time, would come at approximately 6:45.

I showed the students many of my favorite Magnolia Cemetery monuments and memorials-there are so many! But I also gave the students time to explore on their own. For their blog posts on the visit, I asked them to photograph and write about three of their favorite grave sites.
Looking forward to reading their posts!
