Old North Cemetery
The graves of six men who served in Connecticut's all-black Twenty-ninth Regiment, as well as those who served in other units, earned Old North Cemetery a place on Connecticut's Freedom Trail. This group of sites was established by the Connecticut General Assembly in 1995 in recognition of their importance in the heritage of African American citizens of Connecticut.
