Brownsville: Brownsville City Cemetery

Dating back to 1853, this cemetery is a trip back in time. Here you can walk along the gravestones and mausoleums, and see the final resting places of soldiers, gunfight victims, and casualties of the city’s many disease outbreaks, like yellow fever and cholera.

But no epidemic was more deadly than the Spanish Influenza of 1918, which ultimately killed more American soldiers than enemy weapons.
