Tuesday Photo Challenge – History

This featured image represents one of the most historical trips my wife and I have experienced. We were on a Mediterranean cruise in May of 2001, and every stop was steeped in history. Our stop in Ephesus, Turkey was one of the highlights of the cruise. At that time, about one square mile of the city had been excavated, and everywhere we looked was wondrous. This particular picture is of the library in Ephesus.

However, this being the 4th of July, I thought I should include some American history. This next picture is from the siege at Vicksburg, Mississippi during the American Civil War.

  1. I’m hoping you enjoyed a delightful 4th of July. Our history yours and mine, may not be as long or steeped in as much depth, but it is our history good or bad. I remember reading about the library of Ephesus. Fascinating. Loved both pictures.
