Live Oak and Tombstones

I have driven past this cemetery hundreds of times but have never stopped to look. I know it is an old cemetery set up for African Americans after the civil war. The place is in poor shape, many of the tombstones are damaged or missing.

In the middle is a large oak tree. It has seen many of the changes in Auburn and the south.
