"Hope this helps and Gary gets an opportunity to clarify his comment."
Exactly. As I say on my osborn page that I allude to in my msg to Don, there are a lot of footnotes that need to be added to his Washington Pyrmaid and 23.5 Degree pages.
That statement abt the moved obelisk is the 'cut and pasted' stuff that I deal with in my Mis-information section alluded too earlier.
The fact is that Gary doesn't know much about the history of the map or the city, and thought that he would be clever and fluff up his page with a fact or two - but he got it wrong, and wasn't able to tell that it was wrong. He should stick to what he knows and check his fact better.
Other ppl have written websites about his work and he has ridiculed the other people because they don't see it his way. Well here, it is not a matter of opinion. The monument was not moved, the triangle does not point to the CB and the section of Penn Ave between the CB abd WH is not at a 23.5 degree angle.
