Fremont Public Library

Online Program

Parts of major cities - Lincoln Park in Chicago, the Financial District in New York - were once home to sprawling cemeteries. They were rich hunting grounds for body snatchers. Only a few relics of these cemeteries may survive today, but the stories live on in dusty memoirs and microfilm reels.

Historian Adam Selzer brings these stories to life, with tales of bumbling "Resurrection Men" in Chicago, anti-grave robbing riots in New York that were put down by some of America's founding fathers (Do you really think Hamilton would stay home when there was a riot two blocks away?), skull snatching pseudoscientists, and more - including all of the tips and tricks you need to know to launch YOUR career as an old time body snatcher TODAY!
