US History is Often All About Where You Live
This area of the US is steeped in Civil War history, and Michelle describes it best so I will let her words write this post.
"I can't tell you how many times we went down this path [Stonewall Jackson's Marches] on field trips. Civil War and Jamestown -- the bread and butter of childhood history lessons in Virginia."
I grew up in New England and we lived, ate and breathed Revolutionary War history. I didn't really "know" Civil War until I moved to Pennsylvania. Pennsylvania is where the two histories collide.
se-tenant issued last year that celebrates bike riding. I enjoy bike riding, but not in Pittsburgh. It is very hilly here, but it is the going down that bothers me most. I am afraid my brakes will fail. I need to visit Netherlands, where I can bike ride without fear of downhills.
