Hi! Maddie here!
Mom, Dad, Stevie and Dawn spent Sunday afternoon touring Andersonville, a famous National Historic Site in Georgia. You know what a history buff Dad is, and he wanted Mom to tell Andersonville’s story to her readers. When they got home this afternoon (after leaving Furface and me alone for way too many hours), Mom decided this was too important a story to begin writing so late in the day. She wanted time to review all her notes and pick out the best pictures. Mom says that Tuesday and Wednesday’s posts will tell the story of one of the largest Confederate military prisons established during the Civil War (Mom said that was a few years before I was born). Andersonville is also the only National Park System area to serve as a memorial to all American prisoners of war, and its POW museum is dedicated to the men and women of this country who suffered captivity. Another part of the story will be about Andersonville National Cemetery, a permanent resting place of honor for deceased veterans. Now you can see why it will take two days to tell you about this piece of Georgia history.
Besides working on this story, Mom spent the weekend going on walks with Dawn and pruning oleander bushes.
Anyway, I think Mom wanted me to tell you all this because she is feeling guilty about not writing tonight. I told her she is a blogoholic, and she needs to just chill out – like me!
