I got a grant in June from my school to do a little American Revolution sightseeing. So that's what I did.
Jim, my boss, and I headed to Philadelphia.
I, of course, loved this picture of Korean school children visiting the Liberty Bell.
Jim recommended we go to the bizarre Ben Franklin museum. It was almost empty and chockful of strange touches like this bank of phones to call famous people throughout history to see what they thought of Mr. Franklin. I'm pretty sure the museum was downright state of the art for the bicentennial celebration. I don't think much has been done to it since that time.
Watch as Ben calls Thomas Paine.
I think that there is a very similar photo of Jeremy and me in GA back in '97.

Bunker Hill where I should not have climbed so high. By the time I took this picture, I could barely walk. I love dioramas! I barely limped to the train to meet Jim P for Manny's last game with the Red Sox.
Amy, Lucy, and I went to Jamestown. More dioramas!
Back at home for the Battle of Brooklyn celebration at Greenwood Cemetery. Who knew the Redcoats were so regal?
