After the cemeteries were so hastily and poorly cleared, the Danvers State Memorial Committee had a choice to make. We could protest the bulldozing of the cemetery or we could celebrate the fact that it was the first time in forty years that people could walk through the cemetery to see how many graves there were. We decided to celebrate and on a cold November day in 1998 a group of ex-pedients, allies, clergy and press met to walk through the cemetery and bear witness.
