The political graveyard

Link

This web site is a richly indexed and cross-referenced bundle of information about the lives, deaths and last resting places of American public officials. It’s the work of Lawrence Kestenbaum, attorney, academic and preservationist. He explains:

… the idea for the site didn’t just spring into being fully formed. It evolved from what is now my historic cemetery links page. It happened partly because I’m a database guy, and my first instinct when faced with any problem is to create a database. I also hoped to promote appreciation and preservation of historic cemeteries. The project is also a serendipitous overlap of many of my interests: in architecture, in politics, in history, in geographic variation, in place names, in personal names, and of course in cemeteries.
