Civil War notables buried here include Secretary of War Edwin Stanton and Union General Jesse Reno. The people, who lived in Georgetown one hundred and forty years ago, were not that much different than us. They had hopes and dreams of improving their lives, making the world a better place for themselves and their children just as we do today.

When we gaze at the silent walls of the buildings here in Georgetown, we can hear the voices of those families that lived so long ago tell us through their recollections what actually happened here during that troubled time in American History. Their voices echo ours as we wonder how they got through that incredibly difficult period.
