      ... in the cemetery. His grave has become a tourist destination now. Some may say that it's disrespectful to come and take pictures of the stone but I wholeheartedly disagree; if I died and in life I was not super famous or popular and then all of a sudden 150 years later people are visiting my grave every day, I'd be like, awwww yeah!
