Great Work!

What a lovely renovation. It bears mentioning that Hilary Baker was not only locally prominent in his own right, but was an uncle to Elizabeth Van Lew, spymaster and hero of the Unionist resistance in Richmond. He and the Van Lew family have adjoining plots in Shockoe Hill Cemetery, where a new government marker for Hilary recognizes his service in the War of 1812.
