From the tombstone carved in the shape of the state of Delaware to the ‘Remember Me As Thou Stands by’ marker, Delaware’s cemeteries record our history and reflect our ever-changing modern world. This presentation, accompanied by color and black and white images, presents Delaware’s history, culture, and major historical figures and events through grave markers. The talk examines tombstone architecture and interesting inscriptions and shows how permanent memorials reflect individual tastes and specific historical periods.
