    Awesome work. From looking at the pictures I guess most people don’t mind walking over the bodies. I’ve always walked the line of headstones on the opposite side but it would appear that’s not normal.

    Interesting. That hasn’t been the case at the military cemeteries I’ve been to. I assumed they were all laid out the same with headstones rather than footstones.

    Yep I thought the same thing
    The head is directly behind the stone.. We talked about that before the event started and the caretaker for the cemetery helped me find my grandparents graves. I always thought they were placed in front. Not the case at central Wisconsin Veterans memorial cemetery.
