You learn a friend will be visiting Vermont for a dog show and you send them links to historic sites for birthplaces for Chester Arthur -and Calvin Coolidge. I don’t even CARE that both presidents answered to the nickmame “His Accidency” for having taken office because another president died. All that matters to me is that they were both born in Vermont! Can you name both presidents Arthur and Coolidge replaced?
Calvin Coolidge, 30th US President, was born in Plymouth Notch, VT. Wonder if he spoke any French?
“If you happen to be in the neighborhood, could you bring back a souvenir pen for me?”
A blog idea I floated doing a while back involved listing every US president and stating how much I’d be willing to pay to visit their birthplaces/boyhood homes. I visited Woodrow Wilson’s birthplace in Staunton, VA in 2017. But only ventured into the gift shop.
$14 admission? Way too much, Woodrow Wilson ( though your souvenir pens with your signature on them were pretty metal)! I’d pay $25 for you, FDR! Andrew Johnson? You’d have to pay ME!
