I took this photo as we were leaving about an hour before it caught on fire. I almost went up to the dad and asked if he wanted it. Now I wish I had. Twitter if you have any magic, help him find this 🙏🏼

As a historian, the "what if" is not an option of discussion. Only what happened and why. Although "what ifs" do make great off the record discussions. Especially how reconstruction would have gone had Lincoln lived. With the Vietnam comment, there is proof JFK wanted out.
