Abstract:
A study by the Museum of Early Southern Decorative Arts in Winston-Salem, North Carolina revealed that tombstones became important religious and social symbols in York County, South Carolina in the late eighteenth century. The construction of tombstones manifested unique carving art and development in the region. But because tombstones were expensive to erect, they were a statement of economic and social superiority.
