Cemeteries, burial grounds, graveyards – whatever you call them, these final resting places are historical treasure troves. Richard Veit and Mark Nonestied, authors of “New Jersey Cemeteries and Tombstones: History in the Landscape” take viewers on a tour of the colonial-era Elizabeth Presbyterian Churchyard and Newark’s Victorian-era Mt. Pleasant Cemetery. Also shown in the story, Camden’s Harley Cemetery (where poet Walt Whitman is buried) and the Trenton State Prison Graveyard.
