R.I.P Paul Morphy

I was in vacation in the New Orleans two weeks ago, and I had the chance to visit the Cemetery Saint-Louis #1, where you could find the Voodoo mastress Marie Laveau, but also the chess prodigy and unofficial world chess champion Paul Morphy.

I appreciated the chess pieces that were offered to his memory. This cemetery is part of the history of New orleans, you must absolutely visit it, during the day, with a guide!
