Unusual / by Dave Hileman

In the rows of neat and same sized markers that make up much of the National Cemeteries, I found this oversized tombstone in Chalmette National Cemetery to the memory of John Hancock, Seaman. It was given by his officers and shipmates. I don't recall seeing this in any other cemetery. And there were four or five more as well. Not famous nor officers but a young enlisted seaman. He must have been a great friend and sailor. Moving.
