Day three

20160923_193932Harpers Ferry is a large park with a lot to see. There are several exhibit buildings covering the important battles, the story of John Brown and and the floods that destroyed much of town on more than one occassion.
Althought the civil war history is probably the most significant, there were battles fought during other wars as well.
It was also interesting to learn about John Brown in more detail, especially after just having vistited Uncle Tom’s Cabin in August.
There is even a connection to the Lewis and Clark expedition – my favorite of all of the Florentine Films productions.
On Saturday we head back toward Johnstown to check out Friendship Hill,  there is a very important connection to Lewis and Clark -but more on that tomorrow.
