Book Description: 

Created in 1867, Lakeview is one of New England's most beautiful burial grounds, where locals used to gather to share picnic lunches and stories of their past. Meet a selfless philanthropist and her equally generous brother, John Purple Howard, the innkeeper's son who amassed a fortune in the hotel industry. From Civil War hero General George Stannard to lesser-known soldiers of the noted Fifty-Fourth Massachusetts Regiment, veterans, paupers and benefactors populate this peaceful setting. Join Burlington native and historian Thea Lewis as she reveals the stories behind the fascinating and sometimes famous citizens of Lakeview Cemetery.
