Stories Beneath the Stones: Richmond National Cemetery

Start: Saturday, November 11th, 2017 11:00 am
Duration: 03:00 hours.



Meet  Joann Meaker who wrote Stories Beneath the Stones: Richmond National Cemetery. Beyond the gates of this historic cemetery, opened in 1866-67, the visitor discovers row upon row of white headstones, all of which are lined up in military precision. Each is inscribed with a soldier's name and regiment, and each one of them has a story to tell. Following years of research utilizing a multitude of documents and other source materials, JoAnn Meaker explores both the history of the cemetery and the lives of the Civil War soldiers who are at rest here. Part One of the book includes chapters devoted to descriptions of battles, various causes of death, brothers at war, poet-soldiers, letters written home and curiosities, coincidences and anecdotes. In the extensive alphabetical list that encompasses Part Two the author examines the lives of each individual buried here. After scouring through census lists, genealogical data, government records and websites, she presents us with the human side of the story, the facts about those who lost their lives in the war. This one-of-a-kind effort is sure to be appreciated and valued by descendants, historians and genealogists, as well as those with an interest in the Civil War and historic cemeteries in general. in 85 days and 17:50 hours.
