The students in History 206, “The Politics and Practice of History,” visited the Easton Public Cemetery as part of a unit on social memory and monuments. Pamela Murray (Skillman Library Special Collections), a tour guide of the cemetery and expert on Lafayette College history, led the group┬áto see monuments of leopard luminaries such as Francis A. March, Aaron O. Hoff, and others. The students also saw a rare named grave-marker of a Confederate soldier buried “up north,” a “forty-niner” from the California gold rush days, a signer of the Declaration of Independence, and more. The Easton Cemetery is listed on the National Registry of Historical Places. It was opened in 1849, as part of a national movement to create park-like burial places away from city centers, and remains an active site of commemoration.
