 Sometimes referred to as the Westminster of Yale, the Grove Street Cemetery maintains the graves of most early residents of New Haven, along with those of Eli Whitney (Class of 1792), Noah Webster (Class of 1778), Walter Camp (Class of 1880), Roger Sherman, fourteen Yale presidents, and hundreds of other faculty members, alumni, and campus luminaries. One of the oldest burial grounds in the City of New Haven, the cemetery was designated as a National Historic Landmark by the U.S. Secretary of the Interior.

    Is it possible that at the top of this post where the event date is currently listed as September 22, 2012, it should really say September 22, 2013?
