Not all days are created equal, just as all physical locations are not equally beautiful. This past Saturday when we were at Kennesaw National Military Battlefield Park, it was overcast, gray and at times a little drizzle fell down on us. At the top of the mountain is where the Confederates took up their position (you always want the high ground if you’ll be fighting a battle!)
I’m sure that on the day of the battle, it wasn’t as pleasant looking as it was when we were there. This picture looks slightly downhill to the north from the very peak of the mountain, and you can see several cannon placements by the split-rail fence. I just liked the lines in the picture…and the imaginations it stirred in me as I looked at the scene.
ON THIS DAY IN HISTORY: in 1770, Benjamin Franklin send the first shipment of rhubarb from England to the United States as a gift to his friend, John Bartram in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.
TRIVIA FOR TODAY: the Swiss cheese Saanekaese is highly prized and is made in small quantities in Switzerland. It is a grating cheese and is matured for 7 years before being sold.
