Thaddeus Stevens (Lancaster, PA)
Lawyer, congressman, de-
fender of free public
lies buried in the
rear of this cemetery.
He believed in the
"Equality of man before
his Creator." Resided
in Lancaster from 1842
until his death, 1868.
The marker above is at the corner of North Mulberry and West Chestnut Streets, Lancaster, PA, just outside Shreiners-Concord Cemetery. The marker below is just inside the cemetery on the North Mulbuerry Street entrance. From here, Stevens' grave is at the far right of the cemetery.
"I repose in this quiet and secluded spot,
not for any natural preference for solitude.
But, finding other cemeteries limited as to race
by charter rules,
I have chosen this that I might illustrate
in my death,
the principles which I advocated
through a long life.
Equality of man before his Creator."
