(This week’s column picks up from last month’s piece on “The Revolutionary War on Campbell Street,” which looked at the street’s early history along with the city’s public squares, Jackson School, and several churches. This second installment begins with a visit to Cedars Cemetery.) Cedars Cemetery The early beginnings of the burial ground for the colored people of Camden are lost in the mists of time. Tradition holds the owner of the land upon which it stands allowed a burial on the tract at some unknown date.
