Calverton National Cemetery – Tombstone Tuesdays August 11, 2020

Seems WordPress ignored my title change to this post even though it supposedly saved it. Let’s hope this title change sticks.

I mentioned the 7 largest cemeteries on a previous Tombstone Tuesdays – The 7 Largest Cemeteries in the World — BillionGraves Blog – Tombstone Tuesdays June 16, 2020, so I decided to see what I could find on each of them. This took a bit longer than I thought it would take. It’s the largest national cemetery in the U. S. No word on how many graves the cemetery will house, but as the next largest cemetery is last week’s Tombstone Tuesdays post – Abraham Lincoln National Cemetery – Tombstone Tuesdays August 4, 2020 and it can house 400,000 veterans and their families, I think it’s safe to say that Calverton can handle a bit more as it’s slightly larger in size – 1,045 acres (423 ha) vs. 982 acres (397 ha).
