Description

View of the pathways and gardens adjacent to the Revolutionary War burial ground, with entrance gate to the cemetery at left, 1935. This Revolutionary War burial ground is located behind the formal gardens of the Governor's Palace. Soldiers' bodies were interred here when the Palace served as a hospital during the Revolution. The Palace's gardens, designed by Arthur Shurcliff, include boxwood parterres and one dozen large cylindrical shrubs known as the Twelve Apostles, a feature often appearing in eighteenth-century English gardens.
