TALLAHASSEE, Fla - Forty graves believed to belong to Leon County slaves were confirmed earlier this month at the Capital City Country Club in Tallahassee by the National Park Service.

Any markers are long gone, but a series of depressions in the ground along the western edge of the 7th hole proved to be the resting place of men and women who worked as slaves on the Edward Houstoun Plantation, according to the Associated Press.
