Partially Reviewed: Rough draft. I've gone through these pictures once, removing the worst ones, some duplication, etc. I usually take sequences of 4 or 5 pictures at a time and there are lots of near duplicates. I'll be doing a final review later which will cull the pictures down some. To be honest though, I'm way behind on doing final reviews.

Wikipedia Description: Woodrow Wilson House
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The Woodrow Wilson House was the residence of the Twenty-Eighth President of the United States, Woodrow Wilson. Located in Washington, D.C. at 2340 S Street NW on Embassy Row, the president lived there after his second term as president. On February 3rd, 1924, Wilson died in an upstairs bedroom. Today the home is owned by the National Trust for Historic Preservation and operated as a museum.
President Woodrow Wilson bought the home on Embassy Row in the last months of his second term as President of the United States as a gift to his wife, Edith Bolling Wilson. He presented the deed to the house to her in December of 1920, all the while he had never actually seen the home in person. The former president and his wife moved into the home on Inauguration Day, which in 1921 was March 4th, not the current date of January 20th. Wilson made several modifications to the house which included: a billiard's room, a stacks for his library of over 8,000 books, an elevator, and a one story brick garage.
It was from the balcony of the house that Wilson addressed a crowd on November 11th, 1923, as his last public appearance. And while the Wilsons had few guests, former British Prime Minister David Lloyd George and former French Prime Minister Georges Clemenceau did visit the ailing former president there. After Wilson's death in 1924, Edith Wilson lived there until her death on December 28, 1961. She bequeathed the property and many of its furnishings to the National Trust for Historic Preservation.
Bigger photos? To save space on the server and because the modern camera images are so large, photos larger than 640x480 have not been loaded on this page. If you need the bigger sizes of selected photos, email me and I can email them back to you or I can re-load this page temporarily with the bigger versions restored.
2017 photos: Equipment this year: I continued to use my Fuji XS-1 cameras but, depending on the event, I also used a Nikon D7000.
Trips this year:
(April) a 48-hour jaunt for a Civil War Trust conference in Pensacola, FL,
(June) an 11-day trip around the Civil War Trust annual conference in Chattanooga, TN including sites in Alabama, Louisiana, Mississippi, and Tennessee,
(July) the annual San Diego Comic Con trip with a sidetrip to sites in Arizona,
(August) a family reunion in The Dells, Wisconsin including sites in Ohio, Indiana, and Wisconsin, and

For some reason, several of my photos have been published in physical books this year which is pretty cool. Ones that I know about:
"Tarzan, Jungle King of Popular Culture" (David Lemmo),
"The Great Crusade: A Guide to World War I American Expeditionary Forces Battlefields and Sites" (Stephen T. Powers and Kevin Dennehy),
"The American Spirit" (David McCullough),
"Civil War Battlefields: Walking the Trails of History" (David T. Gilbert),
"The Year I Was Peter the Great: 1956 — Khrushchev, Stalin's Ghost, and a Young American in Russia" (Marvin Kalb), and
"The Judge: 26 Machiavellian Lessons" (Ron Collins and David Skover).
