I am not the most patriotic person around. I don’t know where all my ancestors hail from. I know there’s some Cherokee [the original Americans], Irish, English, Scottish, and possibly German…What I do know is that my ancestors come from South Carolina, North Carolina, and Tennessee from as far back as the early 1800’s. In spite of all that or maybe because of it, I do love history…Western Civ and US History were always my favorite subject in school, and I love stumbling up hidden historical markers and visiting well known historical sites whenever I am out ant about. This is more of a Happy Birthday USA post than anything else, and with that I’ll leave you some of my favorite photos of historical sites.
