I love well-behaved spiders! They are, in fact, how most people find my site. Unfortunately, my network has a limited bandwidth and pictures take up bandwidth. Spiders ask for lots and lots of pages and chew up lots and lots of bandwidth which slows things down considerably for regular folk. To counter this, you'll see all the text on the page but the images are being suppressed. Also, some system options like merges are being blocked for you.
Note: Permission is NOT granted for spiders, robots, etc to use the site for AI-generation purposes. I'm sure you're thrilled by your ability to make revenue from my work but there's nothing in that for my human users or for me.
If you are in fact human, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org and I can check if your designation was made in error. Given your number of hits, that's unlikely but what the hell.

- Wikipedia Description: Memphis National Cemetery
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Memphis National Cemetery is a United States National Cemetery located in the city of Memphis, in Shelby County, Tennessee. It encompasses 44.2 acres, and as of the end of 2005, had 41,873 interments.
Originally established as Mississippi River National Cemetery when the Union Army forces took control of the city of Memphis during the American Civil War, it served to inter veterans who died while in the many military hospitals in the region. After the war, several battlefield cemeteries were transferred to Memphis.
On April 26, 1865, the USS Sultana exploded when its boiler ruptured while moored to take on coal near Memphis. Many of the dead from that accident were buried in Memphis National Cemetery.
The Illinois Monument, a granite and bronze sarcophagus, dedicated in 1929. [ The markers say "This monument erected by the state of Illinois in 1928 to the glorious memory of the soldiers of Illinois who found in the Civil War 1861-1865" , and "When President Abraham Lincoln called for volunteers to defend the life of our imperiled nation, these valiant sons of Illinois, together with other heroes, offered their lives with patriotism unsurpassed. With unflinching bravery, they found the bloody battles of the great civil war for Union and Liberty. Upon them, therefore, a grateful state bestows the crown of undying affection and the laurel of victory."]
The Minnesota Monument, a granite monument erected in 1916.
Private James H. Robinson, Medal of Honor recipient for action during the Civil War, interred in Section H, Grave 4131.
