This is a remnant of the short-lived Harris Neck Air Base, a submarine air reconnaissance facility in World War II. Its creation displaced numerous black farmers from family lands held for generations.
This historic, yet relatively unknown cemetery, is the final resting place of many ex-slaves and their descendants born in the first generation after slavery. It is well-maintained and easily accessible through the Harris Neck National Wildlife Refuge, McIntosh County, Georgia.
