Plantation Workers Accidentally Plow Civil War-Era CemeteryBreaking News
The site is next to the Ecila Plantation in western Dougherty County near Albany. Sheriff's investigators say the manager of the plantation told them workers harrowed the area in May or June of 2004 -- NOT knowing the graves were there.
Sheriff's Lieutenant Craig Dodd tells WALB-TV that the area had become "something of an eyesore" and had NOT been kept up. He says the workers were trying to clean up the area when they discovered the cemetery, with graves dating back to 1863. Investigators say the manager admitted the workers plowed up headstones and pulled up a concrete slab.
