Obvious error[edit]

Looking at the info box, we see that Douglass' tomb was built 12 years before his death. Is this accurate? —Preceding unsigned comment added by 68.154.254.17 (talk) 03:40, 24 March 2008 (UTC)

Some Repairs[edit]

I fixed the info box date error. I also took out the description of Confederate Mound which really doesn't belong and I'm sure had many people, me included, thinking that the mass grave for Confederate POW's who died at Camp Douglas were buried somewhere near the Douglas Tomb when in fact it's someplace entirely different. It also had me thinking that the tomb was once part of the grounds of Oak Woods Cemetary. All in all very confusing. There is much more than could be written about the tomb, its dedication, etc. but I'll leave that for others. Filmteknik (talk) 00:59, 17 November 2009 (UTC)
