We have to get to this historical time simply because as teachers we WANT TO but due to testing, administration, End of Year concerts and activities, holidays, etc., Etc., ETC. we rarely do. But maybe this will at least get you to that point and just maybe you might get to hit on a few points of interest.
As much as I WANTED to get here I rarely did either – but I wanted to. There was always something that kept me from covering my second favorite governor (5 term) Edwin Washington Edwards, and Hurricanes Katrina, Rita, Ike, and Gustav.
Just maybe this will be your own jumping of point to the Contemporary Era. Have fun.
