What was the most interestingthing about the Happy ValleyCemeteryThe most special thing we saw was that there was graves broken by the wind or broken because they were too old in the Cemetery.
What was the 2 most special things about the Happy Valley Cemetery The were lots of foreigners that worked in the army, most of them died between 1800 and 1900 because the foreignerswanted to take China’s land. The other special thing about the cemetery was that we found a grave with a poem on it, theperson that died on that gravestone with a poem was Rachel Richards.
Something that shocked us in the CemeteryWe found another big part of the cemetery that was fullof Chinese people and had a big church in the middle for people to pray with.

Questions about the Cemetery Did the British people who owned Hong Kong at 1800-1997 want the people that worked at the cemetery to separate all the races?Why did they block the other big part of the Cemetery? Did the people that worked at the Cemetery want to work at the Cemetery or did they have no choice and were forced to work at the Cemetery?
