PORTLAND'S HISTORIC EASTERN CEMETERY-A FIELD of ANCIENT GRAVES
By Ron Romano
Eastern Cemetery holds more that 350 years of Portland's rich history. Within the sacred burial ground rests settlers who struggled with the natives over resources, citizens who had to choose their allegiance to the king or independence, and abolitionists fighting for the end of slavery. From bank robbers and murdering mutineers to Quakers and war heroes, the lives of those interred offer a window into the past. Black and white photos, plot maps, and diagrams throughout. Paperback. 158 pgs.
