Memorial Day: Grove Street Cemetery, New Haven and other cemeteries, too

Coldharbor In honor of Memorial Day and the brave people who died preserving our freedom, I thought I'd post a little about one of my favorite topics: cemeteries.  My friend and former colleague Michael Gibson sent this article on the Grove Street Cemetery in New Haven from the Yale Alumni Magazine.   Much to talk about here in how we remember and honor the past.  The article also raises the conflict between use of land for cemeteries and for other purposes.

The photograph is of the Cold Harbor National Cemetery, one of my favorites.  It's from the Alexandria Library's collection.
