Edgar Allen Poe

There was a funeral and body viewing of Edgar Allen Poe on October 7, 2009 in Baltimore, Maryland.

Rather timely for the upcoming Halloween Holiday, Baltimore, Maryland has finally done a send-off for Edgar Allen Poe that he has always deserved.  Known for the mysterious and macabre, Poe has bee fought over by five cities trying to lay claim on him; Richmond, Philadelphia, Baltimore, New York and Boston. However, Baltimore has the body, which is 9 tenths of the law. Read more in the Baltimore Sun about it.

Some of the favorites by Poe are: The Tell Tale Heart, The Cask of Amontillado, The Black Cat and The Murders In the Rue Morgue.
