From NPR, a look at the often overlooked: America’s vice presidents. Particularly this tidbit:
Jefferson’s second vice president was New York Gov. George Clinton. (Incidentally, New York has given the country more vice presidents than any other state.) Clinton was memorialized with a bridge over the Hudson River — at least kind of. It’s called the George Clinton Kingston-Rhinecliff Bridge, but according to the Rev. Kenneth Walsh of the Old Dutch Church in Kingston, N.Y., “Most people call it the Rhinecliff Bridge.”
Clinton is buried in the Old Dutch Church’s cemetery. Well, first he was buried in Washington, then he was reinterred in Walsh’s graveyard.
“When he was buried here in 1909, it was with great ceremony,” Walsh says. “There are actually photographs of people standing next to his skeleton — rather gruesome.”
Sadly, I wasn’t able to get any additional details about George Clinton’s public exhumation.
