Mount Auburn Cemetery in Cambridge was founded in 1831, a couple generations after American independence, and I don’t know of any Revolutionary figures who were buried there. (A couple might have been moved out there by their families, as at Forest Hills.)
However, Mount Auburn is the euphemistic resting-place for several authors who shaped our national understanding of the Revolution, including:
- Henry Wadsworth Longfellow, author of “Paul Revere’s Ride.”
- Dr. Oliver Wendell Holmes, author of “The Last Leaf” and other poems.
- Josiah Quincy, author of his namesake father’s biography.
- Jared Sparks, first editor of George Washington’s papers.
