    Laurel Oaks Cemetery

    Laid out in 1852, Laurel Grove Cemetery is the oldest in Savannah and one of the oldest in the Country. The founder of the Girl Scouts of America, Juliette Gordon Lowe, is buried here. The stately Live Oaks with Spanish Moss dripping from their branches pay tribute to the hundreds of Confederate soldiers buried here. There are over 100 Confederate soldiers who died in the Battle of Gettysburg and were brought home 9 years after the battle by the United Daughters of the Confederacy with money raised from bake sales and other projects.
