Visit the monuments and learn about the fascinating lives of John Matthews (“The Soda Fountain King”), De Witt Clinton (New York governor and main proponent of construction of the Erie Canal), Charles Feltman (inventor of the hot dog), Henry Bergh (founder of the ASPCA) and more. Mosca is a funeral director and regular contributor to American Cemetery and American Funeral Director magazines. A question and answer session and author book signing in Green-Wood’s Historic Chapel follow the tour.
