There was an old tv show series called "You Are There" which was broadcasted during the 1950's on CBS. The show took the viewers back in history to events like Custer's Last Stand. There is also a series for kids called "the Magic Treehouse" where a brother and sister team go to different historical events like the sinking of the Titanic and the 1906 San Francisco earth quake (the kids are magically wisked away to safety before anything happens). wWhat historical event would you like to witness? I would have liked to have seen the Last Supper; perhaps the sinking of the Titanic, i would have liked to visit every day life in New York City around the first part of the 20th century, oh the places you could go!

What I want to know is that woman who was with Dillinger and possibly led to his downfall, was a police operative or whether she was just taken by his charms and had no way of knowing that the FBI would gt Dillinger. I think they made a movie about her, but not too sure and thanks for the best response.

yea sure the Titanic is fun. but i would like to go to wherever it was that Cleopatra was with her milk baths, or wherever it is that some desert place got totally covered by dirt. i think Egypt is cool.

I would like to go be at that Motion Picture when they caught John Dillinger. Of course, I would have been in the crowd before being whisked away to today and I would have been dressed as a respectable 1930s housewife, perhaps hurrying home after spending a dime on watching the show. There are other places, maybe ancient Roman Britain or early Anglo=Saxon England, or when the Viking invaded or on my father's side, early Romania and the Ukraine back in the Early Middle Ages when the Hausa League was setting up trade there. It would have been exciting.
