One of the most intriguing books I’ve read on American history is Albion’s Seed. The book explores about 20-25 folkways in each of the four original British American colonies. In 2016, the post about the Backcountry — which is the colony my maternal side landed in — was the blog’s most popular post.
Last year, people were interested in a post detailing the original news story about the assassination of President Abraham Lincoln.
Two years ago, it was a journalistic type entry about the annual Amphicar festival that takes place in Celina, Ohio. It was my first time there — and watching the 1960s-era cars drive into the lake was impressive.
