Join us on the lovely evening grounds of in the cemetery at Graeme Park (indoors in cooler/inclement weather) for a few drinks, munchies, and 30-40 minute talk on a topic of historical interest. $5/cover charge; cash bar and food. No cover charge for members. Bar opens at 6 pm, lecture starts at 7 pm.

In the 18th century, being a dead person really did not mean your body got to rest in peace. Under the cover of darkness and armed with shovels, tarps, and tools, teams of men snuck into cemeteries to extract human bodies from their not so final resting places. These were not the actions of common criminals, however. Instead perpetrators who took to the darkness were some of the brightest and most promising citizens of the new republic.
