The grass is now cut.... WHY?
The media coverage of The Tennessee Flaggers, showed the uncut grass.... I'm sure this motivated WHA to cut the grass.
The Confederate Graves Still Marked with Confetti!!
WHA continues to disgrace our Southern heroes in Elizabethton, Tennessee!!!
It looks like the "Green Hill Cemetery Preservation Committee" of WHA might have abandoned their care taking.
I would like to mow this. Five or six people can mow in about 45 minutes. A riding mower cannot be gotten in due to the locked gate. I do not believe the graves with orange tape (Confederate graves and Tipton plots) can be mowed without cutting the tape.
These photos show how close the cemetery is to being unmowable with push mowers.
