This page and other sub-pages is a reflection of my love and passion for United States History and my travels to the historic east coast.

All of the photographs on this page and sub-pages were taken by me from my various trips between 2008-2012.

“History should be studied because it is essential to individuals and to society, and because it harbors beauty.” ~ Peter N. Stearns

“You will notice that while the oppressors have carried out their plans and had things their own way, there were other forces silently at work which in time undermined their plans – as if a Divine hand were directing the counter-plan. Whoever peruses the story of liberty without recognizing this feature will fail of fully comprehending the meaning of history. There must be a meaning to history or else existence is an incomprehensible enigma.” ~ Charles Coffin, The Story of Liberty

“History, by apprizing them [students] of the past, will enable them to judge of the future.” ~ Thomas Jefferson

“History will afford frequent opportunities of showing the necessity of a public religion from its usefulness to the public; the advantage of a religious character among private persons; the mischiefs of superstition; and the excellency of the Christian religion above all others, ancient or modern.” ~ Benjamin Franklin

“History is God’s providence in human affairs.” ~ Daniel Webster
