Historical facts, thoughts, ramblings and collections on the Presidency and about the Presidents of the United States.

Here are the graves of Richard Nixon and Pat Nixon at the Nixon Library and Birthplace in Yorba Linda, California. In my post, I said that the headstones were flat on the ground, but it looks like I remembered wrong. These photos are from my one-and-only visit there and that was way back in December 2004, so that might explain the hazy memory. Also, I’ve taken a beer bottle or two to the head through the years, and that might also explain things.
