SLAVE CEMETERY

I visited this cemetery with a tour group from Fort Hunter on April 18, 2009.  Our guide, Carl Dickson, director of Dauphin County's parks, gave a very informative and interesting talk on both the McAlister and the Slave Cemeteries which sit on the opposite side of 322 from the Museum and Barn at Fort Hunter.  The headstones from this cemetery are mostly unreadable, but the following list is of those interred there.  They are thought to be relatives of former slaves at the Archibald McAllister plantation.
