America's Cultural History
Did you know that Victory Gardens started during World War I when Woodrow Wilson was president?
In 1918, much of Washington DC federal land was divided into community vegetable gardens. Over 20 million households planted Victory (also known as Liberty, War, or Kitchen) Gardens to aid the war effort.

Why a Victory Garden today?
Edit Wilson and other first ladies since have asked Americans to plant a garden when there is insecurity whether that be over war, food, climate -- or disease.

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.

2020 photos: Well, that was a year, wasn't it? The COVID-19 pandemic cut off most events here in DC after March 11.
The child president's handling of the pandemic was a series of disastrous missteps and lies, encouraging his minions to not wear masks and dramatically increasing infections and deaths here.The BLM protests started in June, made all the worse by the child president's inability to have any empathy for anyone other than himself. Then of course he tried to steal the election in November. What a year!
Equipment this year: I continued to use my Fuji XS-1 cameras but, depending on the event, I also used a Nikon D7000.
The farthest distance I traveled after that was about 40 miles. I only visited sites in four states -- Maryland, Virginia, West Virginia and DC. That was the least amount of travel I had done since 1995.
Number of photos taken this year: about 246,000, the fewest number of photos I had taken in any year since 2007.
