The Charles Baber Cemetery is the largest in the city of Pottsville. Buried here are hundreds of Civil War veterans, including Joshua K. Sigfried and Henry Pleasants, both commanders of the 48th, and the latter the mastermind of the Petersburg Mine.

Sadly, it seems as though every year Baber is the target of vandals. It happened again this past weekend.

We've taken GOD and pride in our country and in our communities out of our schools, sir. In my job (law enforcement) I encounter people all the time who cannot write and who's big goal in life is their next case of Busch beer, seriously. I fear it will only get much worse.
