Revolutionary War Graves in Hanover's Center Cemetery

Saturday, July 2nd, 2022, 10am

There were more than 150 men from Hanover who served during the American Revolutionary War. They were White, Black, Native, and mixed ethnicity. They served and fought through a troubled and anxious time. Join the Historical Society for a tour through some of the 50 plus known graves of Revolutionary War veterans in Hanover's Center Cemetery. This tour will happen rain or shine, after all, it rained, snowed, and was hot during the Revolution too. Join us afterwards at the Historic Drummer Samuel Stetson House for a tour of Stories from the Revolution, an exhibit on Hanover and the Revolutionary War.
