"History or Baseball?"

Posted on

On Friday I had the pleasure of giving a tour of the museum to Jordan and Bryce, “baseball stars of the future”, and their mother, Sydney from Atlanta.  They seemed to really enjoy the experience, as did I.  I think, like many school children of today, American history is somewhat not a priority.  I stressed the importance of this subject, and encouraged them to go to the Atlanta History Museum for a more extensive lesson, since they live in the heart of the history of the Civil War!  I believe that their viewing of “The Battle of Hampton Roads” really got their attention.  Sidney grew up in Newport News and was visiting her mother here.  I told Sidney that if today’s experience didn’t plant seeds of history in the minds of her sons, I didn’t know what would.
