^I like that. On the Civil War tip, one of the spookiest places I’ve ever been is the Gettysburg battlefield. Should be on every Grog’s to-visit list, it’s the definition of hallowed ground.

Not being a Nor'easterner like so many of ya'll (see what I did there?), I will say my favorite part about spending a year in Delaware a few years back was visiting the battlegrounds, the towns and villages where history took place, the backroads and rural areas where America sprang from. That and Amish cooking. Loved me some Amish markets on weekends!   O0

^Antietam is going to be the next trip.

We may also do Valley Forge this winter.

Gettysburg is not someplace I would want to be at night. On our visit only the hardiest of souls stayed past sundown...the park empties out of probably 80-90% of its visitors after dark.

Allen Sherman, who wrote and sang "Hello Muddah, Hello Fadduh, here I am at Camp Granada", also did "My Son, the Vampire."

Nothing says "Family Activity" like crafting shrunken heads.

Or, you could just go to the Capitol in D.C. and pick-up all the Shrunken Heads you could ever need.  :-"

Not spooky, but very scary.  Especially to fathers.

The Comedy of Terrors.
Vincent Price and Boris karloff have a fun time with groulish humor.  A lot of fun.

Yes. I'm so old, I  remember him before he was, 'Soupy'. Back then he was just plain Broth.  :coolsmiley:
