Throughout the 20th century, it became a trend to etch symbols into gravestones. For instance, hands on a stone represent partnership, while crossed swords or cannons often represent military service. The meanings of these symbols can be found in the Cemetery Tours brochure which can be picked up at the Convention & Visitor's Bureau's 24-hour brochure rack located at 3111 10th Street.
