The Family Tree

I think that I shall never see
The finish of a family tree.

As it forever seems to grow
From roots that started long ago
Way back in ancient history times,
In foreign land and distant climes.

William Whipple's House

This is the house of William Whipple, one of the signers of the Declaration of Independence. (Read his Wikipedia entry.) Today his house, located in Portsmouth, New Hampshire, is a National Historical Landmark open to the public. We salute William and the other founding fathers for their role in the birth of the United States!
