In the Hudson Valley of New York there is a beautiful and historic cemetery, The Sleepy Hollow Cemetery. Yes, that cemetery… of the Legend of Sleepy Hollow fame. More on that in another post.
For today’s Wordless Wednesday I present you with three images of three grave sites found within easy walking distance of each other. They are the graves of Samuel Gompers, Andrew Carnegie and William and John D. Rockefeller. I leave you to ponder the irony of it all.
“Ain’t” American history grand?! (I promise to take you on a tour in the future.)
Correction, June 22, 2012: The wonderful folks at Sleepy Hollow Cemetery contacted me today with a correction to my post. John D. Rockefeller is buried in Cleveland, Ohio. Despite my gaff I am truly honored that someone from the cemetery actually read my post and commented on it. Thank you very, very much and my apologies to all.
