celtic cross

and knots

Knotwork's meaning defies literal translation and the symbolism is obscure. The repeated crossings of the physical and the spiritual are expressed in the interlace of the knots. It could be the never ending path of the strand represents the permanence and the continuum of life, love and faith. (source)

A United States Colored Troop Civil War vet
Nelson Stevens 1832-1890
Originally in an unmarked grave, Nelson Stevens was born in Virginia as a slave but was already in Hamilton at the time of the Civil War. He must have arrived in Canada by underground railway to escape slavery and crossed back to the US, to Buffalo, in 1865 to sign up to fight for the North. The Washington Veteran's Dept arranged for a stone to be made and was sent to the Hamilton Cemetery.
Photo includes members of US Veterans and Civil War re-enactors.
