Cypress Cemetery at New Orleans honors firefighters in several communal tombs dedicated to firefighters which were designed in a number of different styles.
The tomb pictured above was built by the Perseverance Fire Company Number 13 and designed by architect John Bennett in 1840.
The tomb below was built by the Eagle Fire Company No. 7. The number “7” is emblazoned on the gate. Underneath the urn on top of the monument are the words, “Pro Bono Publico” which is Latin and translates to, “For the Public Good”.
