Favorite historical sites + a giveaway!

I’ve been to some amazing places when it comes to research trips for my novels. Paris, Lyon, Valence, Le Chambon, and Normandy, France. Lancaster County, Pennsylvania. Nappanee, Indiana. New York City. Williamsburg and Richmond, Virginia. North Carolina. And all over the West. And even to Vietnam, although at the time I didn’t realize I was on a research trip (that’s a whole other blog post).

Peter cannonLeslie LincolnYesterday my husband and I visited Gettysburg after a wonderful research trip to Lancaster County. We’d been to the battlefield before, thirty years ago, when we were in our 20s and brand new parents. Since then we’ve had three more children; survived hubby’s thirty years in the Army Reserve, including two deployments and three mobilizations; and have grown a whole lot older, lol.

I have to say, Gettysburg is still one of the places that I revere the most, and as a 55-year-old woman the loss of life impacted me in a more powerful way than when I was 25, I’m sure. Gettysburg has to be one of the most sacred places in our nation, plus a reminder of the brutality of war, especially when it was against each other.

May we always work for justice and liberty for all, so we don’t have to fight for it ever again.GetAddress

This is my favorite line from President Abraham Lincoln’s “Gettysburg Address,” presented November 19, 1863, four months after the battle: “It is for us the living, rather, to be dedicated here to the unfinished work which they who fought here have thus far so nobly advanced.”

CousinsDoveIn My Daughter’s Legacy, the third and last novel in the Cousins of the Dove series co-authored with Mindy Starns Clark, the protagonist in the historical thread is a Southern Belle faced with injustice. She lives in Richmond, Virginia and volunteers in a Confederate hospital and must make a decision of her own about that “unfinished” work. The book releases TODAY, July 1, and I’m celebrating with another giveaway!

To enter-to-win a set of the Cousins of the Dove Series, leave a comment below about your favorite historical site or one you’d like to visit. The contest will run through July 6, and I’ll choose a winner using random.org.

    I love Williamsburg, Virginia! I have been there several times.
    But, living 10 miles East of. Gettysburg, Pennsylvania, I would have to say that is “Hallowed Ground”….that we “locals” take for granted . (Because it is in out backyard…) I am making a promise to myself to spend more time on the Battlefield of Gettysburg.

    When my sis graduated high school, we visited Gettysburg, DC and Williamsburg. Gettysburg was my favorite. We went on a ghost tour that was really fun! I love the Civil War era, and it was amazing to see the sites that I had read about many times. I can’t wait to take my boys there. I think they’ll love it too!
    Your book looks good–can’t wait to read it!

    We are a family of Civ War re enactors. As we speak my sons are on the Gettysburg Battle Field with the Valley Division Cannoneers detail getting drowned lol. The rest of us were unable to make it due to circumstances,
    It is so so wonderful to see comments of people who appreciate history and its powerful message. There have been times I admit we have had doubts whether anyone other then us truly understood the gravity and importance our history plays in forming us as a people and a society. Whether or not there was any true appreciation. Comments like these however and the appreciation for our sacred sites and past sacrifices make the heat, weather, and cost all worth while. Gives us a little prod to keep our history alive

    I love visiting historical sites…I teach middle school history, so they really capture my interest! I would really like to spend time in Gettysburg. We drove through there on our way to somewhere else and we’ve never made our way back.

  22. Nancy M

    I think it is very surreal visiting any battle ground knowing lives were lost there. At least that’s how I’ve felt. When we visited Independence Hall, I really enjoyed it.

    We visited George Washington’s home, Mount Vernon. It was so fascinating to see how he was ahead of his time, wow, the round barn, heating the home, etc. The view from his home is so beautiful, one can understand why he built in that spot! Loved this vacation!

  36. Penny A
    Jul 5, 2017

    I haven’t been to many historical places. Only two that I can remember. One when I was about 13, The Hermitage, home of Andrew Jackson if I remember correctly. The other was nearing my fortieth year and I’m not really sure if it’s considered historical but it made a big impression on me. Mount Rushmore. The massive size of the President’s heads are not captured as grand in pictures. I would love to go see it again.

    My family and I visited Plymouth, NC last year and saw several historical sites. Especially memorable was a house that still has bullet holes from the civil war. We also saw the Albemarle iron clad replica. There was a sign that showed a building that was part of the underground railroad. On one of our trips to the beach We stopped to visit a plantation home of a public official in the 1700’s. Such an interesting way of life then.

    I have visited lots of historical places. We visited my grandparents every summer in Waynesboro, PA and my mother always planned day trips to places like Gettysburg, Carter’s Grove, Philadelphia, DC. And when my husband and I were newlyweds he was stationed in Portsmouth, VA so we also took day trips to Williamsburg, Jamestown. Then when my oldest son’s Sixth grade trip was to Mackinac Island and I got to be a chaperone! We lived in Wisconsin at the time. I grew up in a house that is on the national register and is now is a museum. My brother is on the board. I love historicals and would love to win!

    My husband and I went to Colonial Williamsburg on our honeymoon and have visited many historic sites since then. So far, I think my favorite was the Great Lakes Shipwreck Museum at Whitefish Point in Michigan’s UP. I’ve always been fascinated by the song The Wreck of the Edmund Fitzgerald and that museum and place reek of history. Amazing place!

    This series with Mindy Starns Clark has been wonderful, Leslie!! I would love to win the series – first so I can read My Daughter’s Legacy and second, so I can share it with my church library. We have a lot of history buffs who would eat this series up! (If I don’t win, I’ll add it to my next CBD order. I’m the librarian – I have the power! 🙂 )

    I would love to visit Gettysburg. My Father would take us, his four daughters, to Williamsburg, Jamestown, Yorktown, and other surrounding sites from an earlier age in our country’s history. Because of those memories, Williamsburg and Jamestown are my favorite historical sites. But I must add that I grew up 10 miles from Bentonville Battleground, where the last major battle was fought against Sherman’s army as it marched through the Carolinas!

  88. Rebecca Booth
    Jul 5, 2017

    Beautiful scene here on your home page! <3

    We have traveled some in Europe, and visited Normandy, along with many other places.
    For myself, I loved the Trachselwald castle in Switzerland…. quite a story there of Anabaptist history!
    But, I don't love to travel and be gone from home for very long, so I would choose Champoeg State Park, and wonder if you have ever been there, Leslie?

  92. Pamela Fallin
    Jul 5, 2017

    My husband of 40 years and our third son are both history buffs so we’ve visited lots of battlefields! Missionary Ridge in Tennessee has an amazing memory as our first battlefield we visited. And my favorite spot is Andersonville cemetery where my parents were laid to rest four years ago. That place is peaceful yet filled with untold sadness.

  93. Lynda E.

  95. Renae Carey
    Jul 5, 2017

    I now live in Idaho but I grew up in Illinois. Back in the 70’s, my 6th-grade class took a field trip to Springfield, Ill. to see the restored log cabin Abraham Lincoln grew up in, and also the park in that surrounding area named after him. I was living at that time in Charleston, Ill. and the old stone courthouse in the downtown Charleston square is where Abraham Lincoln studied and practiced law before he became president. I heard a lot about A. Lincoln as a kid because I lived in his home state. NOW, I would love to see ALL the Civil War historical battle sites and the house where Robert E. Lee signed the surrender. ALSO, would love to see Lancaster, PA and the Amish world. Would be so fascinating if I could. Thanks for the chance to win the new books–exciting!

    In 1969 I had the experience of being at the Berlin Wall and visiting both West and East Berlin. I was also in Prague, and at that time it was not long after the Soviet invasion. Both of those experiences showed me the realities of oppression and for the first time I really understood the freedom of being an American.

  99. Laura W.

    We love visiting historical sites! So far I think my favorite would be Ronald Reagan’s home in Dixon IL. Another one I enjoyed was the Stones River National Battlefield in Murfreesboro TN.

    Both my husband and I would like to see Gettysburg.

  105. Grace Miller
    Jul 6, 2017

    I love visiting any historical site since I am such a historical fanatic. I absolutely loved visiting colonial Williamsburg. I loved the various spots in Philadelphia, PA. I enjoyed that the people who worked at the historical sites stayed in character and it made me feel as if I was taken back in time. Finally, I like the Northkill area in Pennsylvania because my relatives were the Amish that was there when an Indian massacre occurred and they began to migrate to other places. Jacob Hochstetler was my relative.

  106. Pat Harmer
    Jul 6, 2017

    I am fascinated with the under ground railroad that operated during the Civil war. The state of Ohio had several points where the travelers could get directions, nourishment and encouragement. I’ve ready several books centered around this major undertaking and I have visited within Ohio several of those. Makes you feel good to know that humans were helping humans. I love reading historical novels, they remind us of how valuable our history is.

    My parents grew up near Gettysburg and it is still my favorite place to visit! There is a quietness in my spirit when I visit – reflecting on that great battle.

    My father, the history buff, dragged us to all the Civil War battlefields when we were kids. He must be laughing someplace because I returned as an adult with a church history background and spent days wandering….

    I would love to win these books. Thanx for the opportunity

    The Freedom Trail in Boston is a great historical “site” – I guess multiple sites – remembering those that fought to make our country the free place that it is today. From Boston Harbor to the Old North Church each place is a little place of our country’s beginnings. Very cool.

    When we travel in the US, I love to see how America was formed by courageous people, whether it was the patriots of the 1700’s, the brothers who fought against brothers in the Civil War, or those who braved the unknown dangers on the Oregon Trail. We are blessed to live in such a country.

    I will never forget the trip our family took to Colonial Williamsburg when I was a child. Closer to our home in Florida, we have enjoyed many visits to St. Augustine, our nation’s oldest city. I enjoy the combination of Old World, such as cobblestone streets, and New World adventure we find there. Of course, the Atlantic Ocean nearby isn’t too bad either!

    I enjoyed visiting Williamsburg, VA–especially since I got to visit my daughter and her husband at the same time. My husband was a history teacher, so we’re always looking at historical places when we travel.

    Unfortunately, we never traveled as kids or after I got married. Never been to any historical places. If I had the funds, I’d love to go to Mihla, Germany. My dad was in the Army. On April 4th, 1945, my dad and 3 of his comrades were killed when the vehicle they were in was hit. All 4 died instantly. They had just liberated Mihla. The town erected a memorial stone in memory of dad and his 3 comrades outside of the old post office. There are pictures and information about dad and other 3 are on display at the museum located in Mihla’s Town Hall. To me that’s a historical land mark!
