Students will explore the history and design of Richmond’s Hollywood cemetery, including stories of rebels and rockers, politicians and Pulitzer prize winners, and, of course, two U.S. presidents: James Monroe and John Tyler. We’ll also discuss the 18,000 Civil War dead buried in Hollywood and the cemetery’s complicated legacy as a shrine to the Confederacy.
Program Objectives: Participants will examine the history of the city beautiful movement, observe the fall line and learn about the complicated history of the cemetery.
