Stories in the Stone- Victorian Gravestone Symbolism

Stories in the Stone- Victorian Gravestone Symbolism

Have you ever walked the old sections of cemeteries and wondered at the true meaning behind them? What is 19th Century gravestone symbolism all about? Join Bryan Bush, Park Manager at Perryville Battlefield State Historic Site as he gives you insight on customs in Victorian times surrounding burials and cemeteries. Crack the codes on tombstone symbols, opening a whole new way of looking at what they mean. These symbols helped Victorians tell the story of loved ones that had passed. We will have treats and offer a tour of the mansion following the talk.
