About These Amazing States

“The greatness of America lies not in being more enlightened than any other nation, but rather in her ability to repair her faults.”  -Alexis de Tocqueville

As a student of the United States of America and its history, I have come to see the truth and wisdom in Alexis de Tocqueville’s words. There are so many lessons to be learned from studying the many different aspects of the country, including its geologic history, people, cultures, customs, societies, political structures, economic systems, religions, struggles, and successes. Like every country, it has had (and continues to have) its good times and its tough times. The tough times, in my view, always seem to provide some of the greatest lessons. They also allow the most stalwart among us to shine, and we have had plenty among us who have set examples of what greatness is.

Through this blog, I hope to share my experiences, thoughts, and knowledge of the various places I visit, and the history and information associated with them. I will also include experiences with the awesome people I am fortunate to meet. Whether you are here planning a travel itinerary, looking for places to go on a day trip, interested in history, or to enjoy the blog, I hope you enjoy your time here.
