WAS ERECTED BY HIS FRIENDS
IN MEMORY OF
ANDREW JACKSON DOWNING.
WHO DIED JULY 28, 1852, AGED 37 YEARS
HE WAS BORN AND LIVED,
AND DIED UPON THE HUDSON RIVER.
HIS LIFE WAS DEVOTED TO THE IMPROVEMENT OF THE NATIONAL
TASTE IN RURAL ART,
WHICH HE LIVED HAD FULLY ENDOWED HIM.
HIS SUCCESS WAS AS GREAT AS HIS GENIUS AND FOR THE DEATH
OF FEW PUBLIC MEN
WAS PUBLIC GRIEF EVER MORE SINCERE.
WHEN THESE GROUNDS WERE PROPOSED, HE WAS AT ONCE
CALLED TO DESIGN THEM:
BUT BEFORE THEY WERE COMPLETED HE PERISHED IN THE WRECK
OF THE STEAMER HENRY CLAY.
HIS MIND WAS SINGULARLY JUST, PENETRATING AND ORIGINAL
HIS MANNERS WERE CALM, RESERVED, AND COURTEOUS.
HIS PERSONAL MEMORY
BELONGS TO THE FRIENDS WHO LOVE HIM:
HIS FAME TO THE COUNTRY WHICH HONORS AND LAMENTS HIM.
@accessibleColors it’s worth noting that the bot’s display name spells it as “colour” but the handle spells “color”
has it always been like that or is this evidence of a hostile takeover of the account
@monorail i'm getting national mall, not the smithsonian
@trwnh I figured the smithsonian was probably a bigger cultural touchstone, because i’ve heard of it, so i assumed that was what they were going for
but if you pop on satelite view you can see it’s /right/ on the urn
@monorail @accessibleColors The name has always had that spelling of color. Here's a web archive snapshot of the profile from January: https://web.archive.org/web/20190116125554/https://botsin.space/@accessibleColors
