    This chunk of rock is set on Pomfret's old town green. On it are listed the names of those who served in the First World War (1914-1918) but it is also a memorial to those men of Pomfret who served in previous wars, right back to the Revolutionary War of 1775-1783.

    Well worth taking a few minutes to explore this old burial ground.

    I found graves dating back to the 1700s (quite well-preserved and many still readable), with the most recent only a few years ago. It's possible there are even earlier graves here; I did nt check them all.

    Several of the graves had Union flags and bronze markers which I think (??) have been placed to mark veterans of the Revolutionary, Civil and later wars. I saw these markers in all the cemeteries and burial grounds I visited.
