Hidden Truths

The Chicago City Cemetery and Lincoln Park

Research output: Non-textual formWeb publication/site

Abstract

Hidden Truths began when I discovered the recent Internet release of the historical Chicago Tribune. I wanted to know why there was a cemetery tomb in Lincoln Park. Contemporary references only implied the Couch family vault sat where there was once a cemetery. No one seemed to know why that last vestige of the graveyard remained.

This project details my research, beginning with the original documents, and shows how the cemetery became Lincoln Park. It also reveals how the physical remains of earlier Chicagoans became buried within the layers of written history.
