    Default N O T O R I O U S :: A Pointless Game

    What is now a place that interprets the law that may put one in prison, was once a prison. The US Supreme Court was built in the spot where the "Old Capitol" was built after the Capitol bldg was burnt in 1812. The Old Capitol was used for a period of time during the Civil war as a prison, hence "Old Capitol Prison." Where it housed two famous female confederate spy's for relaying Union troop movements to Confederate army's. Boyd and Greenhow might have overlapped each other in prison in 1862, but I think that Greenhow was sent down to Richmond just before Boyd came in. Greenhow had an interesting death drowning in North Carolina after coming back from England. Seeing a Union gunboat ahead, She attempted to leave her ship via a small row boat during a storm, and it capsized. All her golden gifts from English royalty was too heavy for her to stay afloat.

    I'm still up for playing. I think Steve O should get the Berman v. Parker point. What's the next one?

    Not sure the headwind was worth the pointless point, but it's still nice to get out of the office.

    RIP Dissidents of DINA and Pinochet

    According to the NPS, Mt. Zion cemetery in NW DC was a stop on the Underground Railroad. A burial vault served as a hiding place for runaway slaves.
