In Malvern, PA is a mass grave holding 57 Irish immigrant railroad workers who died in 1832 of cholera. Some died because of the prejudice against Irish Catholics that had contributed to denial of care for them. Others, though, are suspected of having been murdered out of fear of the spread of cholera. Dr. Frank Watson has worked on the site of the excavation of this grave, and has written the story of these immigrants, and what is believed to have happened to them.
