Lessons from another century

The Potomac River was rain-swollen on that sixth day of July in 1863, when the Army of Northern Virginia under the command of Confederate General Robert E. Lee came upon it. Retreating from their catastrophic defeat at Gettysburg, Penn., Lee's exhausted and beleaguered troops had nowhere to go, trapped by the high water and swift current of the river.

Floats, sparklers and watermelon

Dominoes anyone?

I came across an old box of dominoes. Before I knew it, I found myself lining up the tiles like tiny soldiers. The line marched right to the edge of the table before curling around until the last tile faced me. I leaned over to inspect my handiwork. Too close and the pieces would tumble.
