Accidental History

Northern Virginia

I've loved history since I was a child. Most kids beg to go to the park. I begged to go to a living history museum. Wearing long skirts was my preferred habit, and collecting seemingly useless things like Victrola records, and old books, set me apart from most.

History isn't found in textbooks or in a classroom.

This blog is called "Accidental History" because sometimes, when you open your eyes, you quite accidentally come across something extraordinary that you've never seen before. Our backyards are teeming with history, if we only take the time to find it.
