9780963564016: Metairie Cemetary: An Historical Memoir - Tales of Its Statesmen, Soldiers and Great Families

There is no significant text devoted to Metairie Cemetary of New Orleans, even though in the historical works of the last hundred years, its name appears time and time again as a great Southern landmark. It is, after all, the place of repose of countless prominent New Orleanians and Southerneers, the home of the famous and infamous and in its blessed precincts, those who made history - friends and enemies alike - rest peace in the afterglow of great events. It is a place for those who love history. It is also a place for those who love tradition and the recognition of people for their sacrifices and contributions.

Until this book, no one with the authority of age and wisdom ventured to set forth a memoir of passage of Metairie Cemetary, from its postbellum creation though its periods of change and renewal to its position in the 1980s - a development of land and facilities capable of enhanced service to a people whose history it reflects. Like any great institution that has survived, Metairie Cemetary has changed as the times changed.

This book is profusely illustrated to show the grandeur of some of the great monuments, the intricate carvings, the elaborate and simple memorials as they reflect the diversity of people buried in these historic grounds. There are crying dogs, exquisite sphinxes, pages from newspapers, memoirs of the 'Lost Cause,' inscriptions that provoke memories long dead, and hundreds of other embellishments to set this volume apart as a reflection of the life and people of the Crescent City.
