Queen Kelly’s Monument

On our way back home, we stopped at Rose Hill cemetery in Meridian MS to see what was left on Queen Kelly Mitchell’s monument that day (a little of her history is here, and a series of pics taken over a few years, here):

Lots of times there are wine or beer bottles. The letter reads: “Thanks for the merlot! I gave you some lipgloss for exchange. Renee & K-T”
