Underground Railroad http://tspr.org en Digging Up History at Macomb's Oakwood Cemetery http://tspr.org/post/digging-history-macombs-oakwood-cemetery <p>Historian and author John Hallwas was looking for a different take on Macomb&#39;s history. He found it by going through its grandest old graveyard, which is Oakwood Cemetery.<br /><br />The result is the book <em>Here to Stay: Reflections on the Dead in a Small Town Cemetery</em>. It will be released in the coming days.<br /><br />&ldquo;Cemeteries are like huge puzzles. The more time you spend strolling through them, noticing things ... there are many mysteries in the cemetery,&rdquo; Hallwas said. &ldquo;The cemetery is a big vast canvas of mysteries.&rdquo;<br /> Thu, 24 May 2012 03:11:25 +0000 Rich Egger 15617 at http://tspr.org Digging Up History at Macomb's Oakwood Cemetery
