IN 1849, Edgar Allan Poe was on his way from Richmond, Virginia, to New York City, to bring his possessions and his fiancee back to Virginia. He never got there. Somehow he ended up in Baltimore, where he was found not long after in an alley, delirious, barely conscious, and wearing someone else's clothes. He was taken to a local hospital, where he died, from causes that are still unknown. What happened to him? Will anyone ever know?
