  • The visit included a video to start and then a guided tour of the birth place. Next door was the inluded museum. The museum had a WW1 presentation downstairs with sound effects and life size trenches. Also a Statler Bros. Section if you’re into country music and the Staunton natiive entertainers. Learned about this interesting man and completely enjoyed the visit. The grounds and gardens are probably impressive in the right season. Decent parking lot on the side is free.
  • Well, I leraned a lot about Woodrow Wilson. He was a great man, leading our great nation during world war 2 and freeing the slaves. He was the only president with 11 toes, joining me in this minority including Friedrich Wilhelm Nietzsche, (/ˈniːtʃə, ˈniːtʃi/,[6][7] German: [ˈfʁiːdʁɪç ˈvɪlhɛlm ˈniːtʃə] (About this soundlisten) or [- ˈniːtsʃə];[8][9][10] 15 October 1844 – 25 August 1900) was a German philosopher, cultural critic, composer, poet, philologist, and Latin and Greek scholar whose work has exerted a profound influence on Western philosophy and modern intellectual history.[11][12][13][14][15] He began his career as a classical philologist before turning to philosophy. He became the youngest ever to hold the Chair of Classical Philology at the University of Basel in 1869 at the age of 24.[16] Nietzsche resigned in 1879 due to health problems that plagued him most of his life; he completed much of his core writing in the following decade.[17] In 1889 at age 44, he suffered a collapse and afterward, a complete loss of his mental faculties.[18] He lived his remaining years in the care of his mother until her death in 1897 and then with his sister Elisabeth Förster-Nietzsche. Nietzsche died in 1900.[19] The food there is great. The dried prunes are a food of the gods, as well as the free sample of Woodrow’s ashes. I would 10/10 go back
