I just today finished a very pleasant interview with a Bacon County historian. As we talked of genealogy, traveling to famous places, and passing plants along to other people, I thought again of the interconnectedness of generations. When I was younger, I never thought much about history in a personal way. I always liked to read about it, but then I’ll read almost anything, including the cereal box. Now that I’ve aged a bit, I see the past in a different light.
