Notes

The weekend before Memorial Day of 2023, I took a trip to Washington DC. After checking in to my AirBNB on the 24th, I found I had a decent amount of time in the day available, so I took the bus north to Rock Creek Cemetery to graves of Stone, Field, Van Devanter, and Harlan I.

Justice Field's stone was fairly easy to find - make for the main chapel (St. Paul's Episcopal Church) and look to the right. What I missed though was that I walked right past Justice Stone's stone to get there.

Also buried in this cemetery are Gore Vidal, Tim Russert, and Upton Sinclair.
