While planning our trip the first thing I wanted to do was go to a few of the older cemeteries. Of course, I figured my daughter and her friend would never want to go with me.
When we arrived, our hotel room in Battery Park was not ready. We took that opportunity to walk all of lower Manhattan. During our walk we happened upon a few of the cemeteries I wanted to see. Luckily, the girls had no problem walking through and looking at the history that was around them. The first church we walked into was Trinity Church. It was absolutely beautiful! Above is the grave of Alexander Hamilton, signer of the Declaration of Independance.
The Corporation of Trinity Church has erected this
In testimony of their respect
The PATRIOT of incurrupable INTEGRITY
The SOLDIER of approved VALOUR
The STATESMAN of consummate WISDOM
Whos TALENTS and VIRTUES will be admired
Long after this MARBLE shall have moldered into
He died July 12 1804, aged 47
