I blog about heritage tourism from the tourist’s point of view. I’m not a historian (though I have an undergrad degree in history) but a lover of history, especially colonial and early American history. And I’m lucky enough to live in the Washington DC area, where there’s an endless supply to feed my addiction.
I write this blog because it gives me an outlet to share something that I love. I try to avoid information that you could easily look up on the internet. I write about experiences — good, bad and (I hope) more than a little fun and funny — and I tell my stories with the hope that you’ll gleam some information that will be useful while being entertained.
I try to be responsible about any historical information that I provide. If it’s not a fact that is widely cited, then I’ll provide a link to my source. If you see that I have provided information that is not correct, please let me know.
