In addition to being able to see the gigantically beautifully carved figures of Robert E. Lee, Jefferson Davis and Stonewall Jackson, you would have the opportunity to ride a paddle-wheel riverboat, ride a scenic railroad complete with Indian raid, listen to the World's Largest Carillon cars, and view memorabilia of the jazz age.
As we looked up the spelling of "memorabilia," we also glanced at its definition... "things worthy of remembrance".
Surely, this nation, above all others, has a great heritage.

We owe it to our children to share that heritage with them. For there is much in America "worthy of (our) remembrance."
