Sojourn

A lady at my church is a teacher,and every year she takes a group of students down south as part of SOJOURN TO THE PAST. They visit important sites from the Civil Rights movement. Places like the routes marchers took in Atlanta,churches that served as rallying points-and sometimes refuge,one year they went to Little Rock Central High.

They had a fund raising spaghetti dinner yesterday,I was glad for the chance to enjoy a plate,and donate to the cause.

It was so good,I decided to make spaghetti tonight!
Seriously,I think it's a good thing. It's one thing to read about it in history books,but to GO THERE...

Very cool! My university did a summer course that retraced the slave escape routes through ohio and kentucky area. I didn't go, but knew a few who did and said it was amazing. The class ended up at the National Underground Railroad Freedom Center in Cincinnatti Ohio, which is an awesome place if you ever get a chance to go.

Too bad you're not closer to our area. We've got a bunch of Civil War battlefields within easy driving distance, including Gettysburg, Antietam, Bull Run, and others. When you drive on some country roads near Frederick, MD, there are historical markers every mile telling you how the troops marched past that point on the way to a battle, or something else important that happened there. Gotta love the history.

Sounds intriguing!
Lake Erie is pretty close to Y-town,and,off South Bass Island is the place where Perry defeated an enemy fleet. 'We have met the enemy and they are ours.' There's the Perry Victory and Peace monument,and, on South Bass itself,is Perry's Cave. Perry's cave is where Perry made plans,directed the fleet construcyion and even held prisoners!
