Wreaths left on graves at Andersonville National Cemetery

ANDERSONVILLE, GA (WALB) -

There is a solemn Christmas tribute to veterans on display at the Andersonville National Cemetery.

More than 750 wreaths were placed on the graves of military veterans and family members buried there.

The nonprofit Wreaths Across America sent the park 675 wreaths and more than another 100 that were brought by visitors and local florists. 

Each year wreaths are placed in different sections so that the nearly 21,000 graves in the cemetery will be decorated at some point.
