While purging through so many books in my front room, I ran across three books with significant attachments.
The Lincoln book was purchased in 1974 and at some point, my sister, Dena, 8 1/2 years younger than me, decided to add her own artwork to the front.
The Founding Fathers book was purchased in 1973 and at the very top you can faintly see my signature.
In 1974, while traveling to Norfolk, Virginia, to see my uncle in the Navy, my grandparents and I stopped at Monticello, my very first visit to Thomas Jefferson’s home. I purchased this book from the gift shop.
