Historic landmarks are so much more than must-see destination points when you’re visiting a given city. They’re poignant reminders of important events, concepts, and people that are inseparable parts of that location’s unique history. They’re incredible architectural and/or artistic works in their own rights, as well.
However, while many people are aware of the existence and importance of certain American landmarks, not everyone is fully up to speed on the richness of their history. The Landmarks
series from History Press is your ticket to a whole new understanding of our great nation’s most important local and national sites.
