ICLW: This is my first time participating in International Comment Leaving Week. It's only the first day, and it's already been a really neat way to meet other bloggers. :)
Show and Tell:
Two weekends ago, when DH had to work, Em and I visited Kingsley Plantation. Located on nearby Ft. George Island. The plantation is from the early 1800's and was the home of Zephaniah Kingsley, his wife Anna, and their children. I thought it was interesting that Anna was a slave whom Zephaniah ended up marrying. She had much envolvement in the management of the plantation. The primary crops grown here were cotton and sugar cane. It was neat to view this part of history. I'd love to bring my students here for African American History month next year. (Though with budget cuts, we'll likely not have many field trips next year...)
