Dwight D. Eisonhower (1890-1969) was born in raised in Abilene,Kansas, and I was fortunate to have a guided tour of his family home where he was brought up with his five brothers. I also visited the Eisonhower Library and Museum where his growing up years, army years, presidential years and post presidential years were all documented.
In the days and weeks to come, it is my intent to post photos and share my many rich and fulfilling Arizona experiences. Hopefully, this blog will engender and create an interest on the part of the reader to know more about the diversity of the "Grand Canyon State" and possibly visit. (November 23rd, 2009)
