Camelia by arkohio Camelia by arkohio
FOR SALE: [link]

Oakland Cemetery in Atlanta, Georgia boasts the burial of Margaret Mitchell author of Gone with the Wind. However Camelia, a true southern belle, still haunts the grounds.

After falling in love with a Yankee, Camelia’s family disowned her and she fled across the Mason Dixon to wed her one and only Clifton. However, he was shot during an ambush attack on his way to the chapel the morning of their ceremony making Camelia a widow before she was ever a bride. Days after the horrible news, a confederate soldier, Barnabus, found her wandering the forest in her tattered wedding gown. Recognizing her from the many cotillions he had attended when the world was less violent he scooped her up onto his horseback thinking she had been kidnapped. When they arrived back at camp, Camelia recognized her Clifton among the prisoners. His hands were bound behind his back. Her heart leapt for joy for he was not dead. When she rushed to him, he shook his head, urging her to deny him for her own safety. She quietly obeyed.

Barnabus was charged with returning Camelia to Atlanta. He was a gentle man and young enough that the horrors of war still affected him. He was quite affectionate with his charge and fell in love with her, but she remained loyal to Clifton. Once they returned home, Clifton was sentenced to death by her father the Judge. She wept.

Touched by Camelia’s heart ache, Barnabus arranged for Clifton’s escape. It was all for naught though, as the three fled through the country side, they were shot in the back, their bodies never buried. Camelia’s spirit wandered until it found her family’s plot in the Oakland Cemetery. Clifton’s spirit cannot cross the gates but each night at the stroke of midnight they meet on the far wall, unable to touch for eternity.
