The grave is the most democratic of institutions—the destination to which we all are bound.
But the markers that adorn our burying grounds are far from equal. Small and simple, elegant and ostentatious, complex and quirky, these richly varied memorials inspire us to examine the stories under the stone.
Travel with writer C.W. Gusewelle in this hour-long KCPT documentary, and explore an amazing array of history, artistry, imagery and symbolism just waiting to be discovered in cemeteries across the Heartland.
