We took Jackson on his first trip to a Revolutionary War Battlefield today, mainly as a way of keeping “the guys” occupied while “the women” hit the outlets north of town.

Not that I recommend it as an real-life exercise, but take a couple of minutes to think about how you would explain a 200 year-old war to a 4 year-old boy. As I was talking, I realized I sounded an aweful lot like George Dubya Bush explaining the Iraq war to America (evil-doers, defeding our country, protecting our families).

It was pretty creepy.
