General Herkimer with a wounded leg at the Battle of Oriskany during the Revolutionary War...
General Andrew, sitting under the same spot on the Oriskany Battlefield, pretending to be wounded as Herkimer was. We're reading a Fort in the Wilderness and it is so convenient and enjoyable that we live so close to the places mentioned in the story. Next up is a visit to General Herkimer's home...

Oh that's too cute! I love being so near Boston and such up here for the same reasons. : )

How wonderful that you live so close to historic places! I remember during our family travels how actually *seeing* a place we'd read about in a book made history come alive. I hope we'll get to see some pictures of your visit to General Herkimer's home! (hint hint ;-)

Blessings,
Shannon
