As the sixteenth President of the United States, Abraham Lincoln grew from the humblest of homes, a small log cabin, and not only became President but is remembered as one of the greatest presidents to ever live. He is buried next to his wife, Mary Todd Lincoln, and their four children in Oak Ridge Cemetery in Springfield, Illinois.
The tomb includes an obelisk, steps, and statues, befitting one of the greatest men in the history of the United States. A bronze sculpture of Lincoln’s head marks the entrance to the tomb – visitors rub its nose for good luck.
Sir Isaac Newton
When it comes to Newton, we don't really know where to start. His discoveries on the law of motion and gravitation published in "Mathematical Principles of Natual Philosophy" may be his most impressive accomplishments.
Newton died in 1727 at age 84 and was given the honorary distinction of being buried at Westminster Abbey. The late scientist's statue depicts him realizing underneath a globe, perhaps finally taking a break after all his progression.
Susan B. Anthony
For women voters, the gravesite of women's rights activist Susan B. Anthony has become a place of pilgrimage, especially on Election Day. Anthony fought to give women the chance to make their voices known and join the men in the voting booth.
One of the most common things to leave on or near her grave in Mount Hope Cemetery, Rochester, New York, is “I Voted” stickers. The site also has plenty of Anthony's family nearby, but they are always overshadowed by the woman who paved the path for women everywhere.
John Belushi rose to fame during his four-year run on "Saturday Night Live." He was famous for his impressions, though producer Lorne Michaels wasn't a big fan of his initially. Throughout his career, Belushi struggled with substance abuse, which would ultimately claim his life.
He was a fan favorite, and even though he's been gone for quite a while, it seems like they wish they had the chance to share a drink with the famous comedian. His gravestone reads, "I may be gone, but Rock and Roll lives on," and is often surrounded by empty bottles.
When he was a teenager, Jimi Hendrix started playing guitar. At age 27, he was the world's highest-paid performer and the headliner at the Woodstock Music Festival. A year later, Hendrix died from substance abuse and went down in history as one of the greatest guitarists of all time.
In 2002, Hendrix's remains were secretly moved from Renton, Washington, to this legendary artist's shrine.
