It's a cliche, but true, that you can discern much about a town by its cemetery; Mount Hebron Cemetery reveals Winchester's secrets.
A more famous resident of the cemetery is General Daniel Morgan, who during the Revolutionary War was one of Washington's most trusted leaders, and was a hero in both the battles of Saratoga and Cowpens. His restful peace was almost disturbed several times: during the Civil War his grave was obscured, so Union troops wouldn't disinter him and remove him to a Northern site; the city of Winchester resisted a later effort in 1951 to move him to the site of his greatest victory, Cowpens, SC.
