This nice lady has just unearthed a number of Civil War veteran headstones: they are now piled up in a corner of her yard awaiting disposal. She says her Massachussetts property was never a burial ground. The names are legible, regiments too.

Her hypothesis about their purpose made me think "Contractor shennanigans" and "double billing."

She has no idea of what to do with them.

I would hope a roundtable or historical society would take posession until the descendants can be contacted.

p.s. Wouldn't you have to be living in a civic and cultural vacuum to have this problem?
