A few days ago I said I would post something creepy about George Washington. He died, somewhat unexpectedly, his plans for a family Mausoleum were just that plans. He was interred in a temporary crypt (that is still there, just past the Mansion on the bluff overlooking the river) in a leather covered wood casket. A couple of years later when the Mausoleum was finished, he was moved to a stone sarcophagus. The cup above was turned from the wood of the original casket. I wouldn't drink from it - would you? I think it is really creepy.
