Ok, so a cemetery visit might not be “fun,” strictly speaking. But this place has a nearly perfect rating on TripAdvisor, where reviewers note its appeal to Civil War history buffs. According to the cemetery’s website, it “was established by Confederate authorities to serve as the burial ground for captured Union soldiers incarcerated at the prison in Salisbury.”
