Hello! My name is Elizabeth and I was born and raised in the southern portion of the United States. I work for the National Park Service as a guide and I love to offer tours of the historical structures and grounds that I have the privilege of working at. I am a huge history buff with a focus on pre-1900s history, specifically the American Civil War, though recently I have developed an interest in 1100 to 1700 England as well. I live with my super cuddly cat, Hector, and the hundreds upon hundreds of books that cover my walls and floors. My favorite genre to read (outside of historical books, that is) are medieval fantasy and westerns.
I love getting postcards, and will appreciate anything you will send me, but if you aren’t sure what type of postcard to send, I would be incredibly interested in any of the following:
-A local/regional/national site
-A historical site/event/person
-Anything specific to your area
I would also really love to hear from you on the postcard itself. I know how awkward it can be to write a complete stranger, though, so if you aren’t sure what to write, any of the following would be pretty neat (though, I just love getting postcards so anything you choose to write would be awesome!). But if you need any suggestions, here are some things I would be very interested in hearing:
-What is a unique thing of your culture/area?
-What is your favorite quote?
-What is your favorite historical event/person?
-What book/movie/TV show/song would you recommend?
These are just suggestions, of course, and I looked forward to each and every postcard! Thank you for taking the time to send me one!
Wishing you all the best
*If it’s not to much trouble, please date the postcard with the month's abbreviation (example: Oct. 9, 2017). I have a hard time reading just numbers. Thank you!
