I Wonder How It Was Here Long Ago

The area of North East Georgia where I live was where the Cherokee Indians lived hundreds of years ago. I often think about how my town and especially my neighborhood and plot of land where my house sits, what it looked like in the 1700s and 1800s. If I could time travel, this is the area I would want to explore, beginning in the time frame of when the Declaration of Independence was signed in 1776 onward. How about you, do you have these thoughts about the areas where you live?

It would be nice to see what the land looked like before it all grew up to what it is today. I understand Wisconsin was tree covered.

Yes, we do have these thoughts. I know that the civil war took place here and we have even found relics from the war.

I lived in 20 plus places over the years, too much to think about. But when we lived in Cleveland that's also Cherokee territory, they could have lived in our backyard. Our road had a Cherokee name.

England has been civilised for a long, long time, but I agree that it would be interesting to go back in time.
