Walking Tour of Laurel Hill Cemetery on Sunday, October 24, 2021 at 1:00 pm
THIS TOUR IS SOLD OUT
Adopted sons, signers of the Declaration, painters, sculptors, men of science, ladies of belles-lettres, famous physicians, pariahs of free press, purveyors of fine wine and, of course, political provokers both friend and foe: all recognized by Thomas Jefferson as luminaries in our nation’s early “Constellation of Worthies.” They now rest peacefully at Laurel Hill; but their stories refuse to conform to those tenets, boldly demanding to be told. This walking tour will be led by foremost Jefferson scholar and acclaimed portrayer of America’s third President, William David Barker (www.thethomasjefferson.com), who will be visiting Laurel Hill from his home in Williamsburg, Virginia.
