Thanks for dropping by my site.

You're definitely in the heart of historyland there in ol' Virginny! (I grew up in NY before migrating to the Wild West with my entire family, and my wife's a native of Philadelphia.)

I taught American History for many years, "The Beginning" (20,000 BC) to 1877. My fav period is 1750-1789.

See you in blogland!

Actually, I didn't need to create another space...the name of your blog is sufficient to set it apart! And that saved me some space. I try to keep visitors from having to scroll too far to find what they're looking for! :-)
