AJHSET_050305_29.JPG: Andrew Johnson Birthplace Replica 1999
The traditional story of Andrew Johnson's birth is held firmly in place by the preservation of a small historic structure located in Mordicai Park in Raleigh, N.C. That small building, probably built in the late 1700's, was part of a complex of buildings known as Casso's Inn, a well known hotel of that period located in Raleigh.
This Inn was where Andrew Johnson's father worked as a stable keeper and his mother worked as a weaver.
According to tradition, Andrew Johnson was born in the loft of the kitchen at the Inn. The story goes that on December 29, 1808 a wedding party was in progress at the tavern when the festivities were interrupted by news of the birth of a baby to the Johnsons.
According to the same tradition, the bride went into the cabin at the back of the Inn to visit with the baby and his mother.
The building you see here is a replica of that birthplace of Andrew Johnson. It represents an important part of the Andrew Johnson story and speaks of a man who began his life in very humble conditions and later became the seventeenth president of the United States of America.

2005 photos: Equipment this year: I used four cameras -- two Fujifilm S7000 cameras (which were plagued by dust inside the lens), a new Fujifilm S5200 (nice but not great and I hated the proprietary xD memory chips), and a Canon PowerShot S1 IS (returned because it felt flimsy to me). I gave my Epson camera to my catsitter. Both of the S7000s were in for repairs over Christmas.
Trips this year: Florida (for Lotusphere), a driving trip down south (seeing sites in North Carolina, South Carolina, Florida, and Georgia), Williamsburg, and Chicago.
Number of photos taken this year: 147,000.
