Next stop: Gettysburg
Join Tom, Scott, James, and his charming friend, Cinderella, as we journey to historic Gettysburg to discuss the bloodiest battle on American soil. After joking about the statue of General Buford being waxed and blow-torched, we visit the newly restored Gettysburg Train station, talkng to locals about the Ground Hog Day type time warp of the town they live in: in Gettysburg it's always early July of 1863! Then we talk about the spooky Lincoln ghost train, and Robert E. Lee's worst mistake of the war. Finally, we fast-forward to General Dwight D. Eisenhower who retired to Gettysburg as we chat with one of his neighbors, comparing Pickett's Charge up Cemetary Ridge to the D-Day invasion.

A Trip to Old Sturbridge Village
Join Tom and James as they journey back in timeto Old Sturbridge Village (http://www.osv.org/) a historical theme park set in 1830s Jacksonian America, when most government was handled at the town meeting level. It was a very self-sufficient time when most everything was grown or made close to home. Menlived their entire lives within twenty miles of their birthplace, the farmer down the road might also be a cooper on his day off, andand owning a horse was the equivalent of a Porsche 930 SE. As James and Tom wander the town, they find out what it meant to be a blacksmith, a cooper, what did kids do for fun back then, what sheep are like, and what types of punishment wereinflicted when they disobeyed the young school Mistress at the one-room schoolhouse?
