PATRIOTS, POLITICIANS and PLAYWRIGHTS: PHILADELPHIA LAWYERS at LAUREL HILL

Date/Time

Jun 10, 2018
01:00 PM until 03:00 PM

Description

For over 200 years, the term "Philadelphia lawyer" has been an iconic description of an attorney who goes the extra mile, maintains the highest ethical standards and, like Rocky Balboa stepping up to Apollo Creed; takes on challenges that lesser lawyers stay away from. Laurel Hill is home to a number of the first "Philadelphia lawyers" as well as others whose courtroom skills and colorful personalities made them among the most talked-about attorneys of their day. Meet the man who investigated Benedict Arnold before he turned traitor, the attorney who was involved in the Court’s first argument concerning slave rebellions, and the prosecutors who found second lives as novelists and poets. They may have made their final arguments, but you can ensure their stories live on during this spirited walking tour of their final place of rest.

 

This walking tour will take place on Sunday, June 10 at 1:00pm, departing from Laurel Hill Cemetery’s Gatehouse entrance at 3822 Ridge Avenue, Philadelphia, PA 19132. Free parking is located in the lot across the street from the Gatehouse.

 

The cost is $15/person; $13/students and seniors or $12/members. Tickets can be purchased at the door or online at www.thelaurelhillcemetery.org.
