Winnie Mae tours the Soldiers and Sailors Monument in Cleveland, Ohio. The monument was dedicated on July 4, 1894, and was built to honor the 9,000 men from Cuyahoga County who served in the American Civil War.
South Carolina Historical Society
While at the South Carolina Historical Society, Winnie Mae liked exploring the minds of some of the United States’ founding fathers, such as South Carolinians Henry Laurens (1724–1782) and John Rutledge (1739–1800). Winnie was fascinated to learn that the South Carolina Historical Society has some documents and primary sources of these famous men! Winnie thought it was really cool to spend time in the society’s home, the Fireproof Building, which was designated as fireproof when it was built in 1827; a time when whole cities were sometimes devastated by a small fire. Winnie also realized that the ideals of these South Carolinian founding fathers, though so far from Oklahoma and so long ago, formed the democratic United States where we live today, more than 200 years after the American Revolution.
