I married a man who loves history

I married a man who loves history.   We’ve been to Mystic Seaport in Connecticut and the Cabrillo National Monument in San Diego.  On a trip from Louisville to Savannah, we followed the battlefields of the Civil War from Chickamauga down the route of Sherman’s March to the Sea.

On a terribly hot summer day, George, his sister and I searched Gettysburg for their ancestors who served in the Pennsylvania 150th regiment.  Diane was chased and nearly devoured by a reaping machine in the Hay Field.

We visited frontier villages in Houston and Fredericksburg, TX;  The National Ranching Heritage Center in Lubbock, TX, one of my favorites;  the Texas Ranger Museum on Waco; the Billy the Kid Museum someplace in Texas;  Mount Rushmore and Custer State Park where we love feeding the burros and I wandered through a herd of buffalo.   Another favorites was the Longfellow-Evangeline State Historic Site in St. Martinville, Louisiana which we stumbled on by accident on a drive to New Orleans.  

And, of course, in D.C., we visited the Memorials; in Virginia, Monticello and Old Williamsburg. 

I can’t remember all the places but I’ve enjoyed every one of them because I was with George and because, fortunately, I love history, too.

What is the favorite place you’ve visited?  Historical on not, please share.

  1. Top of my list – Cahokia in East St. Louis, Martin Luther King Jr at Memphis, Longwood Gardens in Brandywine PA, Louvre at Paris, all of Florence Italy.

  2. We attempted to visit Caholia–closed an extra day due to state budget cuts. I’d still like to go there but fear I’ll never get that far north again. I’ll have to look up Longwood Gardens.I don’t know them. Thanks for stopping by.

  3. Forgot, there are 33 museums at Halifax, Nova Scotia, all very well done. My favorites were the Maritime Museum on the edge of the harbor, the Museum of Natural History that explained the Bay of Fundy, the Black Cultural Centre that describes Canada’s experience with slavery and abolitionism, and the Shubenacadie Canal Museum at Dartmouth just outside Halifax that descibes a canal linking the Atlantic Ocean to the Bay of Fundy through tiny lakes.
