It discusses the meaning of the gravestone carvings and includes stories about Revolutionary patriots Paul Revere, Samuel Adams, John Hancock,and Boston Tea party members and war dead. Also poet Phillis Wheatley, John Winthrop, the father of Boston; artist Gilbert Stuart; and prominent early Boston leaders buried here. Sections on early Boston women, Freemasons, and African Americans. Includes lists of gravestones and tomb owners, and epitaphs. Highly illustrated with over 350 photos and illustrations plus detailed maps of each burying ground.

About the Author: This is the second book on Boston cemeteries by author Charles Chauncey Wells and completes coverage of Boston's historic downtown burying grounds. His first, Boston's Copp's Hill Burying Ground Guide in 1998 told about that North End cemetery. This work finishes the series on Boston's Freedom Trail burying grounds. Wells is descended from Thomas Wells of the Boston Tea Party of 1773 and is related to Charles Wells, Boston's 4th mayor, 1832/3. He is a 1966 graduate of the Michigan State University school of journalism, was an editor with The Chicago Tribune and spent 23 years in mergers and acquisitions of TV, radio and newspaper properties. He lives in Oak Park, IL, near Chicago, and is an active in Freemason. His wife and co-author Suzanne Austin Wells produced all the book's photos. She is a graduate of Dominican University, River Forest, IL, and has been a Chicago Public Schools special education teacher for 33 years. Both are active in the Sons/Daughters of the American Revolution, Society of Mayflower Descendants, and Grace Episcopal Church, Oak Park.
