Liberty Bell

Today some of our home school group headed to the Circa History Guild. This is a new museum in Roswell with a mission of " trying to disseminate historical knowledge to the masses and rekindle the American spirit. We're trying to remind everybody what it means to be an American and how extraordinary and miraculous the founding of this country was." (Interesting to go the same week as the tea party!) They currently have on loan a full-scale replica of the Liberty Bell. We had a great talk given by their curator, Bill Potter, and then all the kids were given the chance to ring the Liberty Bell. Circa has many other interesting history artifacts and we had a great time of learning. This is one place we will be going back to.
