Of course, Hershey was nearby...we HAD to go...
We really enjoyed visiting the Eisenhower National Historic Site. Their home was quite modest, even if they did have their own putting green and helicopter landing pad. I like visiting historic homes because it connects me to the real people and their real lives. "Oh, that was their telephone. This was their porch."
We just really have no idea what our forefathers did for us. You can read and study and visit these places, but they were the ones who did it.
We visited the National Cemetery at Gettysburg before Church. This is the monument erected at the site where Abraham Lincoln delivered the Gettysburg Address. Gettysburg National Military Park is quite a sobering place to visit. Certain things brought tears to our eyes.
This billowing picture was taken from the base of the Washington Monument yesterday. The weather in Washington, D.C. was gorgeous. We enjoyed our tour inside of the monument and up at the top. It's amazing to think that the only thing holding the monument together is gravity. If you ever need a patriotic boost, visit our nation's capital! We are proud to be Americans!
