Gravestone of Lieutenant William Pohlman

Clip: Season 2 Episode 3 | 2m 13s | Video has closed captioning.

This marble tree stump is one of the many graves of fallen Civil War soldiers at the Albany Rural Cemetery. The tree, truncated and without branches, indicates a life ended in its prime. A soldier's cap lies on the roots, a flag wraps around the trunk, and the stone bases are carved with the names of the fourteen battles in which this young man fought.
