So today I'm no longer sick in Manhattan. In fact I ventured away from the Little Apple to the town of Abilene to visit the Eisenhower library and museum. Eisenhower's hometown is Abilene Texas. It is an interesting town, the railhead for the Chisholm Trail; museums, mansions and a lot of history.
Oh Abilene, there are more posts to come from today's photos (over 400) but to give you a glimpse into my busy day sightseeting up here in the Flint Hills.
By the time I made it to Abilene, like my hometown of Duncan it is another Chisholm Trail town.
I was told in the visitor's center that Abilene was the home to three train depots. I imagine so, considering the volume of cattle that came through here in the late 19th century.
This was an interesting place! I had a good discussion with the owner about Native culture and history. I will be posting more photos of it.
Next stop, made by the dutiful registered Republican (I'm a libertarian but I tend to vote to the right). I made my way to visit my first Presidential Library and museum. It was more interesting than I anticipated.
So since we're nearing the anniversary of D-Day this week. Guess what - my wifi is awfully slow. So this is all there will be for this post! Tomorrow the adventure continues.
