Black and White Wednesday - Civil War Spot

the long road

Black and White Wednesday is run by Lisa over at
The Long Road to China.

This little path to a lake can be found at Burr Pond State Park in Torrington, CT. It was incredibly windy and cold on the day that I visited, but it's easy to tell that, on a warmer day, this park is full of swimmers and picnic-ers. Apparently, there is a well-known bronze tablet that was placed to acknowledge and celebrate the Constitution State's participation in the Civil War. It seems like that would be a great spot to bring home-schooled kids for a fun history lesson (and to let them go swimming afterward!).
