Just walking around you can see large clusters of graves with Asian writing on them, a Jewish section, a Veteran’s section, amongst others. Upon walking around the cemetery, I kind of got the sense that most of these people came from at the very least middle to upper class families, just because of the extravagance of some of the memorials and headstones. Certain very extravagant memorials left my feeling curious, especially the large and eye-catching memorial of the family that all had the same date of death. I did some research and came to learn that this family died in a plane crash a couple of years ago and he was an extremely wealthy businessman. Located just a few feet from that plot was WWE star, Eddie Guerrero’s grave.
Indian removal President andrew jackson signed a law on may 28, 1830. The law was called the Indian Removal. A few tribes went peacefully but some did not want to go and leave their home. In 1838-39 the cherokee were forcefully removed from their homes. 4,000 cherokee died on this trip which became known as “The trail of Tears”.
Because of the ending of the Works Progress Administration, most of the artwork since then have been lost or destroyed. The WPA sold thousands of paintings by the pound after closing . Despite these losses, artworks such as Breadline-No One Has Starved, Ploughing It Under, and Coal Pickers have been preserved in museums like Crystal
Sherman Alexie is one of the best known Native American writers today. He started his famous career with poetry and then wrote several novels and collections of short stories. From one of his novels The Lone Ranger and Tonto Fistfight in Heaven, we receive the short story “This is What it Means to Say Phoenix Arizona” which is also shown through the film Smoke Signals. Throughout this story, we get to see life on the reservation as a Native American. This might be foreign to much of the American population as the Native American culture was quite literally erased from history and the only time we saw them was in movies when they were being killed.
Throw in starvation and bitter Chicago winters, and the modern day estimate is 6,000 dead between 1862 and 1865. Many of them are still interred in Confederate Mound (http://www.nps.gov/nr/travel/national_cemeteries/Illinois/Confederate_Mound_Oak_Woods_Cemetery.html)—the mass grave on site. And that’s just an general synopsis. Preserving For The Future
It served as a war hospital during both the Revolutionary and the Civil War where the wounded were tended and those who passed were buried. Many famous people, including George Mason, Thomas Jefferson, George Wythe, Patrick Henry, and President George Washington were buried in its magnificent courtyard. In fact, several 17th century graves still lie intact so far down in the ground under the churchyard, that a rule was made later stating that graves can be no more than 4.5 feet into the ground. Though it had recognizable value in this time period, the Bruton Parish is still implausibly relevant
Once the door came down Homer Barron’s body was found in a bed and it looked as if it had been there for some years at the least. He had totally disappeared before being found and his body looked as if it had begun to rot inwards toward the bed. Not only was the body found but there were several wedding gifts as well as a wedding dress for Grierson and a suit for Homer. Grierson had hoarded the body as she did her own fathers whenever he died. She used the arsenic that she had bought and wouldn’t tell anyone what is was for to take Homer out.
Some of the wreckage was made in order for Yuma to grow, but what they didn’t know was that they were losing parts of history as well. All that’s left from the prison is the main gate, the guard’s tower, and some cells along with the cemetary across the prison. With most of the prison gone today, there isn’t many sources to research about the prison. Most of the journals that people have kept during that time frame were probably burned from the fires or lost during the prison transport which is what makes the information that is currently at the prison so
There are a lot of stories about the lost colony of Roanoke and how the colonists that lived there disappeared. Some say they starved to death and some say the indians might have come and attacked them. Personally I think that the colonists left due to their lack of resources. There is some evidence supporting my hypothesis but also there is a lot that contradicts it.
“More than 200 people were accused, and 24 died; 19 were hanged, four died in prison, and one man, Giles Corey, was pressed to death.” The accused that died as witches didn’t have their deaths recorded, they were lost in time and only documents from Salem give evidence that these handful of people died.
The Myrtles Plantation is well known for being considered one of the most haunted placed in America. The plantation’s own website caters to people who only care about the mysterious hauntings that occur on the site. What was once a large plantation, is now a bed and breakfast for ghost hunting tourists. So the website mostly provide images of the grounds, and stories about the apparitions. The images presented let us see how beautiful the property is both on the inside and on the outside.
Since casualties were in such mass amounts, soldiers were usually buried wherever they died on the field. Most bodies were later moved to National cemeteries. There were over 600,000 deaths in this war. Many of these soldiers bodies still remain buried unknown
