    Interesting story. In paragraph three, I assume you mean he resigned his commission in 1780. It’s nice that he is still remembered with special markers in the cemetery.

    I agree! Very interesting article! Though I must admit, the 1880 bit really threw me.

    Very cool story. Happened to notice that the headstone was recently corrected to read “Shays”
