Veterans within Brick Mill Cemetery

Here are a few of the African American Veterans who are buried within the Brick Mill Cemetery, est. ca.1900.

As you review the headstones, take a moment to reflect on how it was like for these men to serve, fight, and sacrifice for various American Freedoms, that they were not allowed to enjoy.

Then ask yourself the following question: Why did they serve?
