Join us for an epic virtual trip to presidential gravesites, monuments and memorials. Author Brady Carlson will be telling the surprising origin stories of famous spots like the Washington Monument and Mount Rushmore. He will introduce you to lesser-known and surprising places like Millard Fillmore’s grave in Buffalo, N.Y. – just yards away from the grave of funk legend Rick James – and a town in Iowa that plays a sport known as Hoover-Ball.
Carlson is a longtime public radio host, writer and presidential enthusiast . His interest in presidential history prompted him to travel to all the gravesites of the US presidents, research the stories behind the sites, and share what he learned. His book Dead Presidents: An American Adventure into the Strange Deaths and Surprising Afterlives of Our Nation’s Leaders was published by W.W. Norton & Company in 2016.
