Did you get to see the Ken Burns documentary on the Roosevelt's?
I can remember when Presidents and politicians came to small towns.
I wish they still did that, but the word "small" keeps them away, not enough publicity or enough votes. How sad that is.
But back in October 18, 1939 the first lady
Eleanor Roosevelt came to Charleston

Cousin Fred who i mention frequently was there!
True he was 2 1/2 but good ole Aunt Annie documented it.
I so appreciate her diaries.
If something is mentioned, I just look up the day and see if she wrote about it.
Will we someday be looking back at selfies of a event?
Teddy Roosevelt also came through
This was in the paper on Wednesday
