March 2nd, 1914: Westinghouse Dies

George Westinghouse died in New York City, at age 67. As a Civil War veteran, he was buried in Section 2 of Arlington National Cemetery, along with his wife Marguerite, who survived him by three months. Later to be called "The Perfect Partnership" there is little doubt about the impact Westinghouse and Tesla had upon the world.
