Piece of Buried History

June 16, 2002

I enjoyed your article on cemeteries ("Not Just a Plot, but a Passion to Find Art, History and Beauty in Cemeteries," Her World, April 14). I'm a former Chicagoan living near Cincinnati. If you ever travel here, check out Spring Grove (Ohio) Cemetery right off Interstate 75 north of town. As payment for fighting in the war, several Revolutionary soldiers were awarded land rights in this area, and some of them are buried in Spring Grove. There are also several Civil War generals, as well as pillars of our corporate culture.

I believe it's modeled after Pere Lachaise cemetery in Paris.
