Chinese Graves in El Paso's Concordia Cemetery

One of the fascinating places to visit in El Paso is Concordia Cemetery, named by True West Magazine as this year's "Best of the West!"  There you can experience the complexity of the history of this part of the west, as you see graves of Buffalo Soldiers, gunfighters, Texas Rangers, Civil War veterans, early settlers, and Chinese railroad workers. 
The Concordia Heritage Association's excellent website has a full page devoted to the history of the Chinese in El Paso, as well as more photos of this part of the cemetery.  Be advised this website plays music...be prepared for some audio!
