Time Traveler

Since I am apparently somewhat compulsive, I was curious as to what battlefields Dudeboy has visited over the years. Provoking this is our recent studies of the French and Indian War and the Revolutionary War. So, of course, I am starting a list of the sites he has toured. Personally, I think visiting historical sites really can cement what is learned by reading texts and such. If not too obscured by modern encroachment, one can scan the lay of the land and almost envision what took place there all those years ago. So, here is a list (which, without a doubt, will be added to) of the battlefields Dudeboy has visited.*

The American Revolution

The War of 1812
  • Burning of Washington (White House and U.S. Capitol Building), Washington DC . . . August 24, 1814
  • Fort McHenry (Battle of Baltimore), Maryland . . . September 13-14, 1814

The Civil War
*I have probably forgotten one or two, but this is still fairly impressive for a ten year old!

Kingdom of Fife Film School . . . November

Here is the fourth installment of the Kingdom of Fife Film School. These are the films Dudeboy watched during November with his ratings. As you can tell by the scant number of films . . . we were busy in November!
