CitationHopkins, Caitlin Galante DeAngelis. 2014. The Shadow of Change: Politics and Memory in New England's Historic Burying Grounds, 1630-1776. Doctoral dissertation, Harvard University.
AbstractThis dissertation recovers the political histories of New England's historic graveyards. From their early rejection of English burial practices to their modern incarnation as tourist attractions, New England's historic graveyards have been public forums for political posturing and debate. Far from the tranquil sanctuaries of later imagination, burying grounds of the colonial era were places where both the powerful and the relatively powerless could make shows of their strengths and air their grievances.
