On my recent trip to Boston and Maine, we were able to tour the childhood home of Henry Wadsworth Longfellow in Portland, ME. Here are some pics:
It was really cool to see rooms he played in and desks he wrote on. I also learned that his trademark beard was not a style choice, but that he could no longer shave due to burns suffered while trying to safe his wife whose dress had caught fire.
How about you folks? Has anyone else ever visited a lit heavy historical site like this?
If you aren't a campaigner yet. Do it!
Also, don't forget to come back Friday for a Choose Your Own Adventure based on my recent vacation.
