National History and Pride

My family and I made a trip to Washington, DC this past weekend. It was not my first trip to DC, but it was my first trip there as a tourist. We were fortunate enough to have a Capital tour, LIbrary of Congress tour, Bureau of Printing and Engraving tour and we also visited the monuments to Presidents Washington, Lincoln, Jefferson and Kennedy as well as several Smithsonian museums.

I have always been a bit of a history buff, but more 20th century history. I now have a much better understanding of the incredible men and women who freed our country and forged our nation. Its easy to forget that there wasn’t a road map to America, they had to “make it up as they went along” and they did a pretty fine job.

If you ever have a chance to visit Washington, DC, by all means take it. The scenery and attractions are incredible, the people are friendly and the public transportation is first rate.
