Schuyler Slaves Reburial Update

Today’s Times Union has a short article on the effort to rebury the bones of slaves exhumed during sewer work not far from the Albany Rural Cemetery and the Schuyler Flatts.

TU – Slave reburial funds at risk

In the event that this item is vetoed, perhaps it would be possible to raise the money for the reburial without state funding.  $4,000 is not an impossible amount for fundraising with enough public interest and support from local companies.

    St. Agnes had offered to cover all expenses at their cemetery; why hasn’t that offer been accepted?
