Interesting Reading

While on my macro subject quest at Bulloch Hall, I came across this book and reading glasses on a side table.  I was looking mostly at the glasses and the velvety lining of the case and only noticed the page title later.  I don’t know if this is actually a book that was owned by the family but found it interesting.

For those of you who didn’t know it, Bulloch Hall is the childhood home of Mittie Bulloch, mother of President Theodore Roosevelt.  Neither the Bulloch nor Roosevelt families were of the Catholic faith so, why there would be a book on “How to Keep down Protestantism” would be in the house, I have no idea.   It is most likely something that was of the right period and I guess most visitors don’t pay that much attention.  I just found it odd.

Photography is my way to capture and share the amazing beauty of God’s handiwork in the people and places that I experience every day. I focus mainly on nature and travel subjects but also do alot of event work for my church and the occasional wedding or portrait session. My residence is Roswell, Georgia – a northern suburb of Atlanta. I try to get around the Southeast as often as possible and would love to explore other parts of the USA and the rest of the world.
