My human had the pawsome oppawtunity to be raised in a historically rich area of Manassas, Virginia, where two battles of the Civil War happened and not far from Washington, D.C., home to many historical monuments.

As my human grew up, back in the day of the Ford Model T, his father and brother would visit the Manassas National Battlefield, Old Town Manassas, and several other historical sites. Dad became interested in the local history back in the day when he was a young sprat and it has re-ignited as an old guy!  WOOF!! Paw.

As his interest has grown, Dad and I have had some pawsome trips following trails throughout the Battlefield and Conway Robinson State Forest.  Dad likes to stop and read the historical markers and learn as much as he can. Since I cannot go inside the historical buildings, he looks around outside.  If Mom is with us, they take turns going inside.

I love walking the trails of the battlefield and learning about the history of our country and it can to be. I like the area as the trails are clean and well kept so it makes hiking easier for Dad and I- he doesn't have to worry about what I will find!  WOOF!!! I'll be sharing more of these trips as I can - WOOF!!

To help our friends at the Manassas National Battlefield Park with some maintenance, I want to bark about an activity coming up this weekend.  BARK!! Leashed dogs are welcome!  Humans with dogs should bring needed items for dog and consider the needed task of cleaning up the hiking trails.
