It was such a beautiful morning Monday that I was able to snap some shadow shots while doing this story about a flagpole (see top photo) local veterans had installed in the Olde Derby Uptown Burial Ground in Derby, Ct. to honor veterans from centuries ago.
The veterans' groups place American flags on the graves of veterans throughout the area every Memorial Day weekend, but the problem is many of these centuries-old gravestones are illegible, and so it is unclear whether the person was a veteran or not.
The flagpole was placed there to honor all veterans interred at the site.
If you click on the link you'll see the headline on my story on the Web site is missing a letter - it should say "all" not "ll." I didn't do it!
This beautiful historic cemetery, situated on a sloping hill near the Naugatuck River, is said to be the oldest public cemetery in the United States.
