Home and cemetery tour brings past to life
Offers glimpse into local Civil War history
Monday, September 26, 2011
Several hundred area residents on Sunday streamed through a half dozen local homes with Civil War ties and through a city cemetery that holds the remains of veterans from the war.
Mark Schreiber, a local historian and member of the sponsoring Historic City of Jefferson, was a tour guide at National Cemetery.
The No. 1 question there: Is there more than one cemetery here, and how can you tell which one is where? Schreiber explained to members of the public that it’s actually four cemeteries in one: National, Woodlands, Old City and State Lot, which is a part of Woodlands.
