Who is buried in Grant's Tomb, right?

Obviously I wouldn't have posted this if the answer was 500. Just came across this piece of trivia while researching a particular stock.

Not particularly important but anyone want to guess (or just google the answer)?

The trick to the question is in the wording. Had you said companies, it would've been 500, but the Google split makes it 501.

I would post a picture of fireworks if it wasn't so much effort.

Was just researching the price differential between class A and class C stock when I came across this.

Thought it was was interesting trivia.

Well done, BC.
