(CNN) It's been said that dead men tell no tales. But don't try telling that to anyone at Atlanta's historic Oakland Cemetery.
Nestled into the middle of the downtown area, Oakland is as much for the living as the departed, its grounds sharing a wealth of historical information and cultural heritage. David Moore, executive director of the Historic Oakland Foundation, says that's what makes the cemetery a perfect environment for education.
The Schools of Thought staff joined a group of Georgia students recently on a visit to Oakland Cemetery, and witnessed the experience of learning history among the gravestones.
