Point Lookout Cemetery at The Louisiana State Penitentiary, also known as Angola

I wrote this 5 years ago when I had maybe two followers. It was brought to my attention this afternoon and I was reminded that only one thing has changed, there are a whole lot more people reading what I have to say. Both cemeteries are the same. One has markers and the other doesn’t. The citizens of Rapides Parish are still trying to save the Dairy Barn and they still don’t care about the souls in the cemetery.

If by chance you want to donate, there is a Go Fund Me page at https://www.gofundme.com/CLSHCemetery.

I posted this on the website/blog of Central Louisiana State Hospital Cemetery Preservation Committee.  I am putting it here because I want everyone to know how the State of Louisiana values its citizens who have a mental illness.  Apparently it is less than the people they lock up for murder, rape and child molestation.

I hope you all will take a moment to read this.  It is a cause very dear to my heart.  There are several people from Union Parish buried in this cemetery.  It is an issue that everyone in Louisiana should be aware of.

I feel that I must begin this post with a disclaimer.  What I am about to write is my own thoughts and words and mine alone.  In this instance I am not writing as a member of the committee and I do not speak for the committee. …
