TOMBSTONE OF T.G. WOODS - Confederate Cemetery, Spotsylvania, Virginia

I do not think this soldier is related to Tiger Woods, but who knows? This is a very simple Confederate grave in the Spotsylvania Cemetery. The battle of Spotsylvania as well as the nearby battle of The Wilderness was hell on Earth for Confederate and Union soldiers. In the battle of the Wilderness, for example, many soldiers perished in fire because the woods where the battle was taking place caught fire and quickly consumed a large area of land including any soldiers within it. These soldiers deserve our utmost respect.
