Even if it had not served as the most memorable setting in the 1994 novel, Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil, this remarkable graveyard would still draw the curious. The moss-covered graves and monuments date back over two centuries, and mark the resting places of Confederate soldiers, generals, plantation owners and Savannah families of note. Don't come looking for the famous Bird Girl statue, however. This signature icon of Midnight Madness was relocated to the Telfair Museum when the heavy traffic of adoring fans began to disturb neighboring graves.
