the National Archives and my trip to DC
Bart, I went to the
National Archives on Labor Day Weekend, a week after that nutjob Glen
Beck was allegedly there.
I'd already read how his claim to have held the Washington inaugural
address had been debunked, so that's no biggie.
But Bart, for a person
with true feelings for his country (not like that Beck con artist), it
was a moving experience.
You can't take photos of the documents in the Archive Rotunda, but I
saw the Declaration of Independence,
the U.S. Constitution, and Bill of Rights, as well as the Articles of
Confederation, Magna Carta, and other
documents of great historic import.
I also toured the Capitol
and the Library of Congress, saw the Supreme Court building and many
including the Women in the Military Memorial at Arlington National
Cemetery, and spent five hours in the
Smithsonian American History Museum. Mrs DBK and I really packed
the weekend with places of interest.
I've attached a few photos for your enjoyment. They are:
The White House
The FIRST Washington
The Women in the Military
Dean, nice pictures - thanks.
