Uncovering History

22 Aug Uncovering History

As the nation debates historical statues that “should be removed” or “should be preserved” or “should be modified” we should al be mindful of some deserving  statues that were never built because many unsung heroes whose story was never told.  Our community and others, going far back into history has many role models the next generation should know about. This is a good place to start.
