Companions in History

I've recently learned that there is another site on the East Coast that shares some of the same goals and interests as mine.  Cycling Trough History, Massachusetts, addresses the exploration of local history with an emphasis on African-American and related topics.  Their goal is to design a network of bicycle routes that will allow people to explore themes in local African American history on their own terms.

I'm excited to learn that there are people in other communities working towards similar goals and sharing the same interest in the historical and cultural background that makes their locale unique and important.  It would be incredibly interesting to see a network of sites, each exploring a different city and a different local perspective.

Please take a minute and take a look at their site, Cycling Through History, Massachusetts, and learn more about their project.
