Thank yo for the visit and corrections on the names of the ships. I knew "speed" was involved somehow! I grew up in the Chester/Lancaster area of Pennsylvania so childhood vacations revolved around the historic sites of the Brandywine and Valley Forge, Gettysburg, Fredricksburg and Williamsburg, where my wife and I honeymooned. In fact we now live in Kennesaw, GA about 6 miles from the Kennesaw Mountain National Battlefield Park. We'll be taking our basset hound there for walks when the weather warms.

Great to have you! I find so many nice people through HistoryisElementary!

Yes, many of my students confuse the Godspeed with the Speedwell. (Most people don't know about the Speedwell and think the three ships that sailed to Jamestowm were the Nina, Pinta and Santa Maria! I hope this 400th anniversary clears things up!)

Sounds like you've done a great deal of traveling and know the worth of it! Sharing it with your hound dawg is the ultimate compliment to him!

Hope to see you again!
