Your title says it's a common misconception (a subjective statement) that his death report was corrected to say he died of a barbituary. (Which is not a word. You wanted to say barbiturate.)

Being a Jew from Maryland, I do take pride in my home state's early acceptance of religious tolerance, even if it just started with accepting different sects/denominations of Christianity (unlike the other Colonies and early States, which didn't accept Catholics and sometimes other Christian groups).

Plenty of sins in our history, but a good amount of progress, too.
