443. Opportunity

443. Opportunity

There is just something so awesome about visiting a spot where someone important was. I'm not talking about a celebrity or current famous person. I'm talking about the first U.S. president, George Washington. The Ford Mansion, which I toured, was Washington's Headquarters for 7 months during the Revolutionary War. (For how little I cared about history when I was younger, you'd be impressed by how wonderful I think it is now!) I can just imagine places where Washington stood and looked out the windows during the year, writing letters to other commanding officers, wining and dining with important people of the time. I love having the opportunity to be able to visit all of these historical places!
