I had noticed the sign at the end of a long gravel driveway for the past 18 months as a walked or drove along Main Street after I moved to my new home in Pennington, N.J.
I had long planned to get over a see what the Pennington African Cemetery was all about. The weather finally turned nice enough this spring for me to take a walk over.
A Google search reveals that the field tucked in among the homes serves as the final resting place for dozens of Americans, including nine Civil War veterans.
The last burial was in the 1960s, according to a nice article I found that describes how the tiny cemetery for the "Colored" was saved in the early 2000s.
