Here he is with President Lincoln, who was the United States 16th President from 1861 to 1865.
This time Brad is sitting down with Robert E. Lee, who was General of the Confederate Army during the Civil War.
This is Andrew Jackson, 7th President of the US from 1829 to 1837.
This is Theodore Roosevelt, America's 26th President from 1901 to 1909, a particular favorite of mine as I learned all about him when we were in North Dakota several years ago, when we visited Medora and drove through the national park named after him. He was noted for the impact he had on the National Park system and signed into legislation five national parks; Crater Lake in Oregon, Wind Cave in South Dakota, Sully's Hill in North Dakota (later redesignated a game preserve), Mesa Verde in Colorado and Platt in Oklahoma (now part of Chickasaw National Recreation Area). By the end of 1906 he had proclaimed four national monuments; Devil's Tower in Wyoming, El Moro in New Mexico, Montezuma's Castle and The Petrified Forest, both in Arizona. He also extended that, protecting a large portion of the Grand Canyon in 1908.
I'll have to thank Brad for taking this photo of Winston Churchill. He was very well respected in my family and I heard about him often growing up in England. So yes, I have a soft spot for him too. His mother - Jennie - was an American and the daughter of a New York businessman. His wife was called Clementine, such a beautiful name. He lived a very adventurous life which you can read about if you click on his name above and was the center of English life for over 70 years.
and Martin Luther King, Jr. We passed an area cordoned off in DC the last time we were there, where they are building the Martin Luther King Memorial. I am not sure when it will be finished.
Tom Cruise and in the background Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt.....
Thanks Brad, I think your Dad and I might be visiting this place ourselves next time we got into DC.
