In 1962 my father took my brother and I to Gettysburg. Living in Michigan, and my parents being of very modest means, this was a major event, and one that I still marvel that my parents were able to pull off. financially.
The trip thrilled me, Gettysburg and the Civil War enthralled me, and I remain keenly interested in the American Civil War.
That trip led in a direct (though dotted) line to the career that I retired from, and the one that I found most worthy. My parents would have been so proud of me.
Take your boys and girls to historic places...
you never know were the road will lead them.
