Transcript CITY TOUR (Continued from page 31) While we're on things historical, here's one for yoLi. This one is quite close to downtown: Washington Cemetery (at 2911 Washington, northwest of downtown) is the last resting place of Emma Seely. In 1861, posing as a man, Seely enlisted in Company F, 2nd Michigan Infantry, of the Grand Army of the Republic. Her sex remaining a secret, she served with distinction for two years, being decorated for combat valor. Ip 1863 she contracted malaria and left the army. Settling in Houston, she kept her secret until the 1870s when she wrote the story of her life and published it as The Nurse and the Spy. The book sold 175,000 copies and resulted in the army's withdrawal of her pension (alleged fraud being the reason). An act of Congress was required to restore it to her. She died soon after the turn of the century. To find her grave, follow the entrance road of the cemetery as it curves to the left. Take the second road to the right, then just after the next crossroad, you will see, in the fifth plot from the intersection, a group of nine, small, identical gravestones. Seely's is among them. (If you visit Washington Cemetery, be sure to look in on Glenwood Cemetery, just to the east on Washington- much larger, better-tended: the best-known of the names you'll come across there is Howard Hughes.) Finally a few useful addresses: The downtown YWCA is at 3515 a Allen Parkway, some 20 blocks west of the ^Convention Center, along Buffalo Bayou. The only feminist bookstore in town and also one of the best general book- is The Bookstore at 1728 Bissonnet. Where to go for a good time? The > answer: Montrose. Start walking in any ,ft direction from the corner of Montrose and I 3 stores O Westheimer (about two miles west of EMMA SEELY alias FRANKLIN THOMPSON o downtown) and one quickly finds whatever q. it is one seeks of an evening. £ And if you want a taste of Texas g music, try the Texas Opry House, 1416 Richmond Ave., or Gilley's Club, 4500 Spencer Hwy. in Pasadena, Tx.
