Memorial Day 2014

Last year, I did a guided tour of Central Park on Memorial Day.  This year I decided to visit Alexander Hamilton's' grave at Trinity Church, right on Broadway in lower Manhattan.

It's a beautiful graveyard and many veterans are buried there; most from the Revolutionary War.  Hamilton's wife Eliza is buried right next to him.

A few blocks north, on Broadway, in City Hall Park, I spotted this plaque.

Plus this information:  Here the Declaration of Independence was read to Washington's Army, July 9, 1776.

Thanks for stopping by and sharing my life with me,
