When you enter, an inscription assures you that "The Dead Shall be Raised." Early American headstones with the soul flying to heaven abound. You will find Eli Whitney, Charles Goodyear(the name on the blimp), and Roger Sherman, signer of both the Declaration and the Constitution. Noah Webster and Elbridge Gerry (gerrymandering) are both here. Along the outer walls are the earliest headstones going back to The 1600's. They were taken from the Green, where the bodies are still buried around the Center Church.
