“The newly proposed rules are still under consideration, and public comments can be submitted directly to the National Park Service and Department of the interior via the Regulations.Gov website until April 30. The preservation of historic resources always requires a delicate balance between present day needs and ensuring that future generations will be able to learn from past. Not everything can be saved, but if we ignore the historic sites from our nation’s past, generations of voices will fall silent.”

Grrrrrr. 😡

Has America lived up to the ideas of the founders of this country, many of whom failed to heed their own words in the first place? That's the question that forms the basis of Jill Lepore's new book — a masterpiece of American history.
