Harpers Ferry was.... Wow. I was so glad Kyle Kopko and I decided to come as we drove to Williamsburg (listening to audio of The DaVinci Code on the road).
So I'll let the photos, audio, and brief text tell the story.
Beautiful. Wow. Beautiful. Even Jefferson liked this place. He wrote the following words while sitting on this rock:
Just below the rock is St. Peter's Catholic Church:
One of my favorite places was Storer College. This was one of the first integrated colleges in the United States. Andrew Johnson created a great piece of poetic justice when he granted the United States Armory at Harpers Ferry to the Storer College. Thus, the site of John Brown's last stand became a classroom in a multicultural, multiracial institution of higher education.
I had to pose for a picture.
Naturally, lots of fun. We had our initial orientation with the American Institute of Parliamentarians. Sessions start tomorrow. My lecture is on Thursday at 4:30. My certification test is Sunday morning. I'm looking forward to a great week. Hopefully, I'll be able to post some pictures during the week.
