It’s the 200th anniversary of Edgar Allan Poe’s birthday. What better way to celebrate then to go to his funeral here in Baltimore… yes, his funeral. After stumbling through the streets one night here in Mobtown in 1849 drunk as a sailor, the infamous writer of “The Raven” & “The Telltale Heart” was laid to rest with an uneventful funeral with only a few in attendance.
There will be a myriad of macabre festivities throughout October including a public viewing of his body, an all-night vigil at his grave, a funeral procession followed by a funeral on Sunday, October 11th. Check out the Poe Bicentennial Web site for more information http://www.poebicentennial.com/events.html .
