COOL: Here Is Where
I just saw an article on an interesting new project, Here Is Where. Amateur historian Andrew Carroll is traveling across the country to help identify places where small, interesting events occurred, to bring notoriety to the events and the locations. Some examples: a train station where Lincoln's son was rescued from death by John Wilkes Booth's older brother, and the hotel where Langston Hughes was discovered. These are some small events, of course, but not unimportant. Having someone devote his time to finding out about these just warms my heart, which also aches for itty bitty interesting things. In fact, this project seems to be just ideal for Small Reviews, which is all about taking little things and displaying them for you.
