On October of 1849, it was al over for Poe. On his way to Philadelphia for an editing job, he got off the train in Baltimore. He was found unconscious a few days later in the street. He died in a hospital on October 7 and was buried in Baltimore.

One of America's most gifted and mysterious writers died from "excessive nervous prostration affecting the brain and resulting from exposure, encephalitis or inflammation of the brain . . . [a condition] a physician of today might prefer calling it lobar pneumonia, complicated by transient retardation or depression" i think Edgar is Awesome! infact more than that. i felt so bad that he had to suffer throught that. you seem obsessed with him, but that's ok.
