Kurt Deion started visiting gravesites when he was 8 years old, and in the 19 years since then he has seen over 1,200 interment sites listed as “famous” on the database Find a Grave. Kurt has a Master’s Degree in History, and he maintains a website, Kurt’s Historic Sites, where he documents his travels and provides historical information. In 2015 Kurt was interviewed by C-SPAN network founder Brian Lamb on the C-SPAN television show “Q&A”.

About The Book

In 2003, nine-year-old presidential enthusiast Kurt Deion presented his father with an audacious request: would he help him follow in the footsteps of historian Richard Norton Smith and C-SPAN founder Brian Lamb by taking him to visit the final resting place of each deceased U.S. President? He got all he asked for and more.

Deion reconstructs his decade-long, cross-country quest and analyzes the evolution of his perspective on the commanders-in-chief and what it means to visit a cemetery.
