Louisville, Kentucky: Zachary Taylor's Gravesite
President Taylor's grave is best remember for when scientists opened it up to see if they could determine the cause of his death. After some quick tests, they put him back here. Taylor was president number 12 and hero of the Mexican War, good reasons to name the entire cemetery for him. What's more, he's easy to find once you get into the cemetery, which is located on the east side of town.
There's one main road going into the cemetary. Drive to the end of it, and look for the big statue. Taylor isn't far away.
By the way, the cemetery is right off the Interstate 264. That means it's easy to get to it, but look out for the traffic at rush hour.
