My friend Darin says that, if you are within 50 miles of a dead president, you should detour to the grave to pay respects. Since the poor, short-termed William Henry Harrison is buried west of Cincinnati, I left the hotel by the river road this morning and visited his burial site high on a hill overlooking the Ohio River. I was the solitary visitor at this quiet little grave.
Harrison’s grave has not always been as well-tended. Take a look.
