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 to 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.
