Patriotism is our homes

I saw this on my surf thru the webby world.  I think it is very important.

Do you visit battlefields, memorials, or other historic places around you or when you travel?  We go to The Alamo everytime we go to San Antonio.  The battle site of the battle of San Jacinto is minutes from our house.  We go there often.  Do you even know what the battle of San Jacinto is?  Why is it important?  Yes, it is the day that Texas became a Republic.  It was over in 18 minutes.  The famous "remember The Alamo" was coined.  But it was a piece of history that you can sit and touch.  It happened right there.  Have you visited Gettysburg?  That place has a feel like no other place. 

Do you fly an American flag?  Only on holidays? 

If you have never been to a re-enactment, you just have to go.  It is a wonderful way to learn about history.  I have seen them and also be in them.  We use to do Civil War re-enactments.  Kids love it.  Questions, Questions, Questions.  It is a great way to get a conversation going or a project started.
