Follow Ken Follett as he retraces the steps of America’s Freedom Riders, the civil rights campaigners he describes in his book EDGE OF ETERNITY.

Y’all, listen. If you in any way, love history, you need to read this series. The third one was released today, and I’m so pumped to read it after TWO YEARS of waiting.

I warn you, each book is a thousand pages.

He’s also written “Pillars of the Earth”

Got a shout out in the Monday morning memo at school. 

"One of the guest speakers was our very own, Rachel, who wowed the group. We appreciate your teacher leadership and your desire to learn more about literacy."

This comes because of the “thegrownuplife” lesson I taught to fellow teachers at my school.

Telegram from General William T. Sherman to President Abraham Lincoln announcing the surrender of Savannah, Georgia, as a Christmas present to the President., 12/22/1864 - 12/22/1864.
Item From: Records of the Office of the Secretary of War. (1861 - ca. 1870)
Power of the Pen. The capture of Savannah on December 21st was the culmination of Sherman’s “March to the Sea”which effectively crippled much of the South’s military resources, civilian property, and general infrastructure. It was an incredibly risky campaign since Sherman was operating deep within enemy territory without supply lines. It was a brutal but effective campaign that was designed to destroy both the South’s desire and capacity to fight.
