I've been working on a digital slide show I'm planning to show to two groups of people at Masonicare in Newtown. The slide shows are at 10 & 11 o'clock on this Monday, George Washington's actual birthday so the theme everyone chose last month is American Historical sites. We'll be taking a number of virtual tours-the second best thing to actually going to them.
Here are some of the places I pretty much arbitrarily chose:
Boston Freedom Trai
Old Sturbridge Village
Valley Forge, PA
Gettysburg Historical site
and finally, The Alamo
Obviously when I think of early American history, the east coast pretty much dominates the scene but in effort to be well rounded, I threw in the Alamo.
Whether or not we get to all of these places depends on how long the audience wants to dwell in a particular place. If we don't see them all, then there's always next month.
It's amazing how much there is to do within a couple hundred miles radius (except the Alamo of course). If anyone is really interested in history, there are some great 2 to 3 day trips here.
Who needs Disney World!
