More on African American Cemetery

Scott and I returned to the field in Anne Arundel County today to record, among other things, the African American cemetery. We recorded, if memory serves, fourteen grave fossa and seventeen fieldstone markers. We haven't drafted the map yet, but many of the graves appear to fall into one of several rows.

The setting is remarkable: a rise above a deeply cut spring with a wide vista of fields and forest. Again, similar cemeteries likely occur throughout Charles County.

We'll post a drawing of the cemetery in the next day or two.
