Have you ever been to the Cumberland Gap, walked a bit of the Wilderness Trail? There is an incredible amount of history to be discovered at the Gap. As you would know, it was the gateway to the West, long before St. Louis erected the Arch and called it the gateway to the West.
There is a National Park nearby. Our National Parks and those who staff them are true treasures. In fact one of them in the Vicksburg Memorial Park got me started into genealogy and I am forever grateful to that Ranger.
There will be a National Jamboree at the Cumberland Gap on June 9, 10, 11 and 12 in 2011. If you go to http://www.wil-syl.com/jamboree3/ you can learn all you need to know.
I’ll see you there.
