MAY 29-- Class project to identify Civil War tombstones in Odell County, Illinois. A teacher-led project called Operation Gravestone has identified seven veterans graves. I will write about this tomorrow in my Saw the Elephant Civil War Blog. Always great to get the kids involved.
JUNE 4-- Jensen's Point, near Pacific, Missouri, reopened. Now, if I can just make it up all those stairs for that great view. Do they have an elevator?
JUNE 5-- So what really happened to the Blue Swallow Motel's former owner? Ted F. Jones was a prominent eastern New Mexico rancher and owned the iconic motel in Tucumcari, N.M. for much of the 1940s and 1950s. It was thought that he and his wife died in a plane crash. And the mystery deepens.
