Revolution Rock

The large boulder is in the Gallup Hill Burying Ground. Soon, I imagine it will become unreadable.

It is a great list of Revolutionary War men buried in this graveyard. It would be nice if every cemetery had a list of military men and the wars in which they served so that the gravestone hunters like me could easily find them and photograph their graves.

Flickr has many such groups where people ONLY take photos of gravestone of those who served.When put all together in one place, you can see the differences, regionally, in the gravestones that families placed there. Many simply waited for the standard military marker that the government provides.
