He died there in 1900.

Troops In Berlin 27 April 1914

I was interested in seeing if the "over a thousand soldiers in a bunch" that Math spoke of in his diary actually made the news. I was able to find a very detailed photo of the military procession from that day. In this photo, the soldiers have just emerged from the Brandenburg Gate.
