You’ll love this atmospheric walk through two of Concord’s oldest cemeteries as we explore everything about our graves from burial customs to iconography, plus a goodly share of Concord-centered tales, including: what Henry Thoreau though of ghosts; a first person description of Nathaniel Hawthorne’s gruesome encounter with a drowned woman; and the mysterious case of the soldier whose head went missing. A sometimes humorous and sometimes chilling look at the stories behind the stones.
