When people find out I’m a history teacher they often ask me what my favorite part of history is. That’s like asking me which one of my children I love most except for that metaphor to work I would have to have a lot of really boring children and one of them is named American Revolution and I kind of love him or her most.

So imagine my shock when I learned that there is no museum dedicated to the American Revolution anywhere in America! How could that be? As a history professor I’m qualified to point out that without the American Revolution we wouldn’t have an America.

Thanks to CBS I learned about this national deficiency and the plans to remedy this problem by 2015.

I’ll definitely be in Philadelphia when this baby opens up in 2015.

What’s your favorite part of history?
