  • It was overcast with a light rain, but so many sites. We went for Grover Cleveland, but also saw Aaron Burr Sr and Jr, Jonathan Edwards, John Witherspoon, and more in the (Princeton) Presidents Plot. They even had the grave of the founder of Tulane University.
  • Historic cemetery. 2 US presidents and many veterans.
