  1. The Nina, the Pinta and the Santa Maria are about all I remember from a term of American history. Those were the three boats with Columbus. Oh, and a little about Pilgrims and sweet potatoes, Revolution and Paul Revere and FDR’s New Deal. Vague memory of the Louisiana Purchase increasing the size of the US (bought from France) and buying Alaska from Russia. Landing on the Moon. Ok, I remember quite a lot. So cool that you have a picture of that boat! Great post!
