Happy July 4th! This holiday inspires me to read books about American history: presidents, symbols, battles, trivia, monuments, houses – there are some great stories!
Probably most adults could not coherently discuss
- the differences between the 1840 and 1860 census
- how a daguerreotype differs from a tintype
- or the repercussions of the 1890 census being destroyed in a Department of Commerce fire.
But the children of Island Pond and Lowell, Vermont can.
