In the past, I got a lot of my history lessons from either movies, novels (fiction) or musicals. You’d be amazed at how much you can learn about history in a 1940s musical. Sure, I learned history in school, but I never really retained anything learned from text books. It wasn’t until I started traveling that I really understood the history of our world and developed a passion for it.
When you visit a famous battlefield or walk through historic sites from another era, you actually begin to understand what happened and want to learn more. That’s what happened when we visited Virginia Beach. I didn’t think there was much history there, but boy was I wrong.
