I stumbled upon it by accident, really. I went into the subject of history thinking I was all into European history. I still love reading and learning about Europe, don't get me wrong. Sophomore year I took an introductory course into pre-Civil War America and was fascinated. I loved learning about the building and expansion of the country, of Manifest Destiny, of the market revolution, and why the Civil War happened. I took several courses on American history throughout my four years there and just loved it. Yep, American history is my thing.
I've been watching the John Adams mini-series the last couple of days and I've been really enjoying it! I always liked John Adams, especially after I read a novel set around him back when I was a young teenager. Anyway, my favorite quote popped up this episode and thought I'd tell you about it.
Nice, huh? I love a good quote!
Happy Army Birthday and Flag Day! My day was fairly uneventful, but aren't they all these days? It was a beautiful day outside and if Brandon were here, we would totally be going to the beach. Soon though!
