The history present in Pittsburgh is seemingly endless- even its cemeteries have historical pasts. Allegheny cemetery was instituted in 1844 and is the final resting place of a list of famous names, which is daunting in its extensiveness. Jane Swisshelm, an abolitionist, journalist, and women's rights advocate, Thomas Williams, a Civil War congressman and prosecutor in the impeachment of Andrew Johnson, the songwriter Stephen Foster, and Josh Gibson, the baseball great.
