As the saying goes, some people will take their strongly-held beliefs with them to the grave. That was certainly the case for Indiana native Nathaniel Grigsby, who passed away back in 1890.

As AWM shares, photos of his headstone are absolutely exploding on social media, and it all stems from a message that was inscribed on his stone. It appears that Grigsby wasn’t a big fan of the Democratic party, and one whole side of his gravestone is dedicated to an anti-Democratic rant.

“Through this inscription, I wish to enter my dying protest against what is called the Democratic party,” the inscription reads in part.

Social media has been having a blast with the pics of Grigsby’s headstone, but the Democratic party from his time was a little different from its current incarnation today. That being said, there’s plenty of people that hold Grigsby’s feelings close to the vest as well.

“I have watched it closely since the days of Jackson and know that all the misfortunes of our nation has come to it through this so called party therefore beware of this party of treason,” the inscription continues.
