Savannah’s Waving Girl

Unlike the cruise ships further south, nobody stands at the edge of the port to wave farewell to the massive cargo vessels leaving the Port of Savannah. In this case, its a reversal of fortune where those on board listen to beach music coming from the shore and watch...

Lexington and Concord: Patriot’s Day, Everyday

It may be a sad commentary but like most nations, ours begins with bloodshed. Minuteman National Historical Park is dedicated to the opening days of the American Revolution.
