I am new to this forum from East Wenatchee, Washington; on the East side of the Cascades. Looking forward to learning and being able to share information about the “Glorious Cause” with others that are informed about our country’s history.

Welcome to the forum! Very glad to have you. Wow, Washington State must be a beautiful part of the country. I’m from Phialdelphia and we have some nice areas, though I would imagine the expanses of nature out west are incredible.
Our country’s history is definitely inspiring – how did you get interested in it? I look forward to chatting.

I recently had a sudden urge to become engulfed in our nation’s story and I started reading every book I could on the subject. I can’t really explain where the bug came from, but I’m totally enamored with this history.
Washington state is definitely beautiful, especially where we live here on the east side of the Cascade mountains. I’m actually a transplanted Texan so seeing seasons change is a new experience for me. My wife and I are planning a trip within the next few years to the east coast so that I can see first-hand Boston, Philly, and all of the other historical landmarks that I’m so rapaciously reading about.
Thanks for the reply

Indeed, the history bug sneaks up on us 🙂
An east coast trip would be quite enjoyable, I believe. In cities especially like Botson and Philly, there is a unique mix of old and new that makes it really special. There are high rise buildings on the same block as 1-2 story colonial homes, all mixed together in a way that is surprisingly nice. And of course there are preserved historic areas the’ve done a great job maintaining to bring history to life while you’re there. Definitely an exciting area of our nation to have interest in, enjoy the reading/exploring.
