Our Favorite Stories from Chalmette National Cemetery
In March 2016, the National Park Service, the National Center for Preservation Technology and Training, and the National Trust for Historic Preservation, with sponsorship from D/2 Biological Solution, engaged in a volunteer project at Chalmette National Cemetery in Louisiana. Volunteers and staff alike were inspired by the many stories buried in this historic cemetery. Here are a few of our favorites, caught on film and Instagram!
BIG thanks to these #breakadifference students from #ohiostate who returned for a second day of service with the #hopecrew at the #chalmettenationalcemetery today! Thus far we've cleaned 1,454 headstones and realigned 152, and could not have done so without our awesome #npsvolunteers #savingplaces 👍🏻🛠⚜
