Yes, I have to read Eugene Genovese's Roll Jordan Roll and read/review Elizabeth Fox-Genovese's Within the Plantation Household before tomorrow night. And yes, both of those books could stop a bullet. But who could stay inside on a day like today?
Pete needed a ride to Providence, so I packed my camera and the Genoveses' greatest hits and spent the morning in the North Burial Ground.
The little girl buried under this beautiful monument is named "Minnie Maria," which is an adorable name.
I'll post more good Rhode Island names and epitaphs in the coming days.
