My fiancé and I offer walk through the city cemetery in Natchez and find it extremely beautiful, so the other day we decided to walk a block up to the national cemetary-- big mistake. We were greeted by a worker who was shoving French fries into here mouth and slurping on a fountain drink-- very unprofessional. She then hollered at us that we couldn't take our dog into the grounds. We didn't have an issue with that, but we did explain to her that we were sorry and didn't realize that we couldn't bring him because the city cemetary welcomes you to walk your dog as long as it's leashed. She then proceeded to act as though she had no idea that there was another cemetery (it is only a block up and it covers roughly 100 acres). As we were trying to leave she then turns to us, rolls her eyes, and says " I's don't know what theys rules be ova there but we ain't like that!!"
Evidently it was not her day and she was just looking for a fight. They should really screen applicants before hiring just anyone off the street. It really does an injustice to that cemetery and what it stands for.
I first went to this cemetery back in high school for a school bonus credit. Now, twelve years later I went back and enjoyed myself even more. This time I understand the importance of the people buried here and the path some of them paved for our lives. My advice is do some research on some of the graves and make it a fun history lesson. You can also go to STanton Hall and purchase a book of graves to look for.
