We shall not cease from exploration
And the end of all our exploring
Will be to arrive where we started
And know the place for the first time.
- T.S. Eliot

Welcome to Ten Roads! This blog is intended to be a place for me to share my (generally Civil War-related) thoughts and experiences. I try to update once a week at the very least. All comments and readers are greatly appreciated!

Oh boy.

Park Service to charge museum admission fee.

In reality, it is a better deal for the visitors. Currently the film is $8 and the proposed cost for the film + Cyclorama is $12. $7.50 is obviously a lot cheaper. However, something just bothers me about the museum requiring a fee. This will also cause ticketing to be backed up, causing people to decide against standing in line. That's what happened when we had the tickets for the museum but still weren't charging. We lost a lot of visitors then, in my opinion. Hopefully all of this works out with minimal hassle for visitors and minimal hassle for the Foundation staff.

Witness tree damaged

Here is the article from the Philadelphia Inquirer.

Oddly enough, I don't remember it storming on Thursday. I must really not be paying attention anymore.

I've come to a conclusion...

I absolutely despise all of the pointless sectarianism involved in academia, especially the study of the Civil War. It's gotten to the point where other people's opinions are annoying me, which is not something that happens typically and it bothers me. For this reason, I'm going to take a break from this for a short while, probably a few weeks. Besides, I will be busy with some freelance stuff and going back to school. I don't want to wind up hating what I actually love doing, you know?
