At The Journey Through Hallowed Ground Partnership’s Annual Meeting, held at James Madison’s Montpelier, the forthcoming book, Journey Through Hallowed Ground: Birthplace of the American Ideal, was unveiled. Photographer Kenneth Garrett talked about the book and showed numerous photographs from it. The book covers 175 miles of land from Gettysburg to Monticello that is home to 15 National Historic Landmarks, nine presidential homes, 13 national parks, and the greatest concentration of Civil War battlefields in the United States. This region encompasses parts of Pennsylvania, West Virginia, Maryland and Virginia. 

Then, Ms. Wyatt introduced David McCullough as an inspiration to the movement and celebrated the April 29, 2008, passage of the legislation to designate the Journey Through Hallowed Ground National Heritage Area. She showed three brief promotional videos. David McCullough talked about the importance of recognizing that historic area, of history, and of teaching history. close
