Monday April 21, 2008, is Patriots’ Day in Massachusetts. In keeping with the holiday spirit, here are some photos from our cemetery of the tombstones of veterans of the American Revolutionary War.
The first two photos are from the tombstone of Zideon Hooker, considered a character and story teller who may have exaggerated a few of his tales. He claimed to have been the drummer boy at the Battle of Bunker Hill, and to have had his drum shot out by the British.
Our church superintendent, Beverly Hurney, will be conducting a tour of the cemetery on June 8. More details will be coming.
