In the 1930s, frost and shifting earth had taken their toll, and the neat rows of adjacent headstones were a jagged and gap-toothed mess, unbecoming of a simple churchyard, let alone the resting place of thousands who, "gave their lives that that nation might live." The black workers of the Civilian Conservation Corps undertook the herculean task of hoisting each segment of headstone from its hole, regrading the ground beneath, and leveling the stone once again above the sainted dead's final repose--black laborers who, in their work, were honoring the men who, in 1863, fought for the freedom of 4,000,000 men and women with the same hue of skin.
