A little more than two years ago, I visited Hartford's Old North Cemetery and left disappointed. The grounds, the final resting place for many Civil War soldiers and city luminaries, were strewn with debris and choked with vegetation. It was a mess. But much has changed since that 2012 Fourth of July visit. Many of the toppled tombstones have been re-set and most of the weeds and trash have been removed, making the 206-year-old cemetery well worth a visit. I channeled my inner-Mathew Brady and Alexander Gardner to shoot these images at Old North this morning.
