Join me as I walk part of the Village Cemetery behind the Whiting Community Church in Whiting, Vermont. I saw Revolutionary soldiers buried there. Plus, there is one of the largest tree stumps I’ve ever seen between the headstones! (It’s that brown mass between the headstones on the right in the photo below.)
If there are darker scenes, it is because the sun was setting and it wanted to rain again. So many unreadable headstones where I strolled. This cemetery is still worth a visit, though.
Below is a list of American Civil War soldiers who are buried there.
