beautiful history

Sunday, September 16, 2012

The other day, before Marshall's parents left for Texas, we went to Wilderness battlefield and Monticello. Now these are both things that I have done before, but it was still cool to go back. The most wonderful part about Wilderness is that there is a monument to Texas (pictured third below)! It is crazy to think that centuries ago, Americans and not were fighting on this very soil for our freedoms. Seeing all the battlefields is definitely something else very eye-opening.

It's pretty neat how you only have to drive an hour or two around here and you find yourself immersed in history. While Marshall had to work the other day, I went to Monticello again with his parents. It is BEAUTIFUL. It is Thomas Jefferson's home that took him decades to complete. The view of the mountains is breathtaking.. I know I've touched on Monticello before since I wrote about going with my mom and grandma, so I'm not going to add much else. The pictures do more justice than my words ever could.
