    Vincennes is my old "stomping grounds" from my teen years. I lived across that bridge on the Illinois side 30 minutes away in Robinson. My niece lives there now. Great pages. Lots of memories.

    You might have a street in Vincennes, IN named after you, but I have a whole town (Atkins, VA) named for me. It's a small town (I wouldn't have it any other way) in southwest Virginia.

    So it seems that it's not such a tragedy that old William Henry kicked the bucket only forty days or so into his presidency.
