If you didn’t catch Sam Hendren’s piece on WOSU 89.7 FM today, you need to listen to this story from Green Lawn Cemetery in Columbus where volunteers and students are working to identify African American Civil War veterans and mark their gravesites.

Organized as a non-profit in 1848, Green Lawn represents a vast treasure for Columbus historians and bird watchers, and a peaceful sanctuary for everyone.
