About us:

Laurel - photographer and writer

 I love to travel to early American historic locations.  I enjoy photographing reenactments, landscapes, and interpreters.  Colonial Williamsburg is my "happy place".   I'm a professional photographer based in  Gainesville, Florida.  You can check out my website here.  When I'm not traveling, you will often find me watching reruns of Turn: Washington's Spies, reading the latest Colonial Williamsburg Trend and Traditions magazine, or playing cribbage with my family.

Aidan - Editor and Writer

I first discovered my passion for American history in the Hamilton craze of early 2016. Since then, I have never looked back. I specifically favor the early nineteenth century, but I love learning about all periods of our nation’s past. As an aspiring author and teacher, I hope that channeling my thoughts and experiences in an online travel and history blog will help prepare me for a future of learning - while also sharing my passion with the world!
