I have been listening to the history books by this author that are available on Hoopla, which I have free from the local library. These are the two I have listened to these past two weeks--I feel as if I have never learned so much about the American Revolution until now. The second one is very interesting, telling stories of multiple americans living in France. I search for images of the people and the paintings mentioned--the two below were on the 1885 Paris World Fair.

|Niagara Falls by Church|
|The making of this statue of Admiral Farragut sculpted by St Gaudens is a fascinating final chapter in the Greater Journey.|
