A group of men find a wild, virgin site in New Jersey near which soldiers of George Washington's army camped during the Revolution. They have a vision of building a beautifull cemetery on the site as an important community project, but have little resources. They are swept up in the new concept of Memorial Parks as a cemetery plan and decide to creat a cemetery rich in natural beauty, accentuated with notable works of art. Their struggle to accomplish their goal is told through the history of the cemetery's annual reports to their association members. How to build a cemetery? Who are the people who operate them, and what they mean to the millions who visit them every day? This book will give you the answers.
