1228. Wellington Pillar of State, by Elizabeth Longford (8 July 1973) This is volume two of the author's superlative biography of the Duke of Wellington, I having read volume I on July 22, 1970. This book is rich in its account of English Parliamentary history, a particular interest of mine. Wellington died Sept 14, 1852 and was buried at St. Paul's Cathedral on Nov. 18, 1852 (they must have had good embalming techniques in those days, eh?). Tennyson wrote his great ode: Ode on the Death of the Duke of Wellington by Alfred Tennyson, 1st Baron. Edmund Clarence Stedman, ed. 1895. A Victorian Anth.. one of my favorite poems of its genre.
