Knock, Knock, Knocking on Heaven's Door

Uploaded: August 14, 2012 05:11:32


James A. Garfield, the 20th president of the United States, is one of eight former presidents born in Ohio. He is buried in what I’d call an ostentatious 180-foot-tall memorial building in Lake View Cemetery, Cleveland, that’s listed on the National Register of Historic Places. This knocker is one on the weathered blue doors at the entrance. Gloomy day here - have a wonderful Tuesday, everyone!
