Join authors Ronald and Abby Johnson for a discussion for their book, In the Shadow of the United States Capitol: Congressional Cemetery and the Memory of the Nation.
This study explores the multiple ways in which Congressional Cemetery has been positioned for some two hundred years in “the shadow” of the U.S. Capitol. This monograph on Congressional Cemetery focuses on the dominant narrative associated with the site: its legacy as the first national burial ground in the United States. Given this emphasis, the text presents a political and cultural analysis of the cemetery, with particular focus on the participation of the U.S. Congress.
