Beck Knob Cemetery (Updated)

Shortly after i move into my current home, twenty five years ago or so, the local paper runs a story about a slave cemetery on Dartmouth Street in North Chattanooga. Intrigued because the cemetery is only 2 blocks from my house, i scout the cemetery out. After video cameras become affordable, I revisit the cemetery and take standard definition video. This was 5 years ago.

The history in the cemetery interest me. Especially when contrasted to the Beck cemetery where the plantation owner is buried with his family. Maintained and cared for and guarded by a fence.

The cemetery on Dartmouth is overgrown and not cared for. Not much has changed in 150 years.
