National Park History
Take the time to read about the hows, whens, and whys of
history. There's a ton of surprises just around the bend. Did you know the Fax Machine was actually invented before 1900, but nobody cared to use it, ... kinda just like today. Did you know that at the 1876 Philadelphia Centennial Exhibition, the
exhibits included the Statue of Liberty's torch and arm, Alexander Graham Bell and the phone (no, not cell phone),
Thomas Edison and the phonograph, and more modern inventions that we take for granted today than you can shake a hickory stick at. Do you know anyone who shakes a hickory stick? Yes, they used to do and say that.
Go visit the places where history happened. It's a lot more
interesting than you think and includes such a variety of history from politics to how the United States and nature merged to
form the union we have today. Our national parks and historic sites tell that story, including the well known and lesser known spotlights around every corner.
