Ebenezer’s Lost Cemetery

May 5 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm

In this free online talk, I’ll be tracing the history of a lost African American burial ground in downtown Hagerstown, MD. The Ebenezer or Bethel cemetery dates from at least the 1840s and was the main cemetery for Hagerstown’s 19th-century black community, but today no sign of it is left. What happened to this graveyard, and to the human remains buried there? I’ll tell the story and try to answer the questions.
