I loved my second visit here September 5, 2011. I identified the graves of several signers of the Declaration of Independence. Naturally, I visited Franklin's Grave and that of his family and descendants. There are many Revolutionary War patriots here as well. This is one of my favorite sites to visit. Thanks for posting this map!
