  1. Adventure and revolution is inevitable only in hindsight.
    Whenever I visit a historical site here, I like to think back to the history that the early Americans made there, from the bloody scene at Bunker Hill to the proud reading of the Declaration at the Old State House in Boston.

    1. someday i will get to boston for just that the history and the greats that left their shoe-leather on the walkways. you mention getting lost in history as you pass through a site this is what draws me so often to fort vancouver from chinook indian tribes living near the columbia river, to the hudson bay fur company that built fort vancouver plowing fields around the fort the very ground i walk across. vancover barracks was active from the civil war through world war 2, were the fort once stood a spruce cut-up mill stood to manufacture wood parts for planes during ww 1. today a fort replica draws in tourists as well as myself were history comes alive!

      1. Boston is definitely worth a visit. In addition to the go-to attraction of the Freedom Trail, I would encourage you to walk through Sturbridge Village. History really comes alive there, a living museum centered around a mid-19th century town.
