Volunteers Uncover Hundreds Of Lincoln Cemetery Graves


By Lisa Blackwell

Volunteers uncovered more of Lincoln Cemetery’s past Monday.

Crews from Maxwell Air Force Base raked leaves and cut away heavy overgrown brush and trees.

More than one hundred old graves were revealed when the ground cover was removed.

Volunteers piled bags of leaves and trees near the entrance of the 102 year old graveyard.

Ot 1st lt. Dustin Schimp, Community Relations Officer, says, "Lincoln Cemetery has a long and proud history with the city of Montgomery and a lot of ties with the community here so we felt this would be a really powerful way for us to both connect with the community in a really high visibility location and also pay our respects to the veterans who are buried here."
