We are literally just up the street from Harper’s Ferry today. Lucky thing it’s not mid-October, or who knows how busy it would be. I’m glad to be in the region , as I’ve never been in this particular neck of the woods before, and it’s a pretty fundamentally taught history moment (or at least, when I was a kid)

I’m pleasantly struck by how lefty/crunchy granola shepherdstown feels. A good deal more resist stickers than Confederate flags to be seen. My personal prejudice would have guessed Maryland to be more liberal, at least in a region with so much Civil War history. Happy to have been mistaken. Thank goodness for college students and old hippies.
