This cache is a virtual at the grave site of one of the forgotten founders of our country... Arthur St. Clair.

Arthur St. Clair was the 15th President under the Articles of Confederation (a precursor to the Constitution). He is one of the most important men in our history but he died flat broke and in obscurity. Unlike Washington and Jefferson whose popularity is found nationwide, St. Clair is a remote character that is never mentioned in high school history or civics classes (except mine of course). I won't go too much into his history but you can read it for yourself at the cache site and at the link below.

I chose a virtual style cache for this one due to the location of the grave. All you need to do is answer the following question:


The answer can be found on the grave.
