Visit to the National Mall, Washington, D.C., May 4-5, 1917

My wife and I decided to visit Washington's National Mall. Although I had heard of the Mall, I really wasn't expecting it to be so large. (Yes, I had visited Minneapolis' Mall of America in 1992—right after it opened and before we moved from Minnesota.) The National Mall is unlike anything I had experienced before.

2017 Visit to Gettysburg National Military Park

I recently visited my first historical site of the 1861-1865 war between the United States and the Confederate States. During junior high I had memorized Abraham Lincoln's Gettysburg Address, and we briefly read about other battles of the Civil War. Unfortunately, however, I forgot much of the information in a fairly short time.
