The Idea of Order at Hollywood Cemetery
#3
Hollywood Cemetery in Richmond VA is on the top of a hill and overlooks the the James River that runs through the city. It was constructed in 1847. There are 2 presidents and several civil war names buried there.
Actually you're right, if I remove the Sherman line; it no longer speaks of the civil war. That portion needs to be tidied up anyway.
"Idea of Order" is an allusion to Wallace Stevens, who wrote a book of poetry "Ideas of Order" and a poem "The Idea of Order at Key West". The caps were in keeping in with a poem that might have been in Ideas of Order, but I am not stuck on it as it isn't my usual style and doesn't really add anything.

Thanks for some perspective for revision.
