Legends of America Newsletter - November 2018
That's my view today from the side of the house looking back to my cabin office.  As I'm typing this, I'm thinking seriously about going back in the house for the rest of the day. Snowy Monday's aren't very productive anyway, and I'm hoping to find an old thing of hot cocoa mix somewhere buried in a cabinet.  

Wanted to send this one out before y'all got busy for the holidays. We are celebrating not only Veterans Day (Never Forget!), but also Native American Heritage Month.  You'll find plenty of great specials at our General Store and Photo Print Shop in this edition of our newsletter.  

Hope you and yours travel safe this season, and that you bring home lots of warm memories with a little turkey. I'll do my best not to be one.

Did You Know?
November is Native American Heritage Month. 

While Native American History is well documented, there are hundreds of facts and trivia about our first Americans that many people are not aware of. For example, did you know centuries ago, Native Americans developed a process in which dried cactus-eating insects could be turned into red dye called cochineal? This red dye was highly valued by the European cloth industry for hundreds of years and was used to dye the red British uniforms in the American Revolution.

The American Tradition of Thanksgiving
The way we celebrate Thanksgiving in the United States today is not without its controversies and debates. Long before the Pilgrims had their feast, Spanish explorer Francisco Vasquez de Coronado led 1,500 men in a Thanksgiving celebration in May of 1541. 
Veterans Day is Everyday
With remembrances and celebrations across the globe for the official end of World War I, 100 years ago, our thoughts are with the many who step up for our nation everyday. War is treacherous, but when the Nation calls, our heroes deliver.
