  1. Thank you for the challenge, Frank. I thought I wouldn’t have an opportunity to respond to your prompt while on my trip, but I had been to Fort Niagara, where there is a cemetery dating to the war of 1812, and I was debating whether I would bother posting any photos from the cemetery. Your prompt got me thinking.
