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.
