    I worked in a cemetery as a groundskeeper over the summers when I was in high school. This kind of thing was unfortunately pretty common. Drunk high school students usually.

    Yeah, that's way more likely than some left wing or anarchist conspiracy. :lol:

    “Those headstones are irreplaceable. They were there at the time of the burials."

    Uhh...isn't that typically when you place a headstone?

    I'd take that as meaning they didn't wear away and need to be replaced, or had been previously vandilized. That said, it's less uncommon than you might think for couples to buy plots well in advance of their death and just not add the name and date of the other onto the tombstone when one dies. That just tends not to happen in military cemeteries. :lol:

    If you know anything about Key, he was. He was especially against the Colonial Marines — a very effective group of ex-slaves. He also felt that White should be “good christians” and take care of the inferior negros.

    If you know anything beyond the first stanza of the poem that became the national anthem, you’d know that it is racist. Not in a blatant, vulgar way, but as an insulting piece towards all blacks that dared to fight for their freedom instead of just letting the superior whites take care of them.
