Ese’s Weekly Shoot and Quote Challenge: Feel

I’ve been told I was born in the wrong century, and sometimes I believe it.   Whenever I look at these photos, I feel as if I am going back in time to the early 1800s.  All were taken either at New Echota which was, until 1838, the capital of the Cherokee Nation in North Georgia or on the grounds of the Vann House, the home of Cherokee planter Joseph Vann  who was removed by federal and state troops in the 1838 Cherokee Trail of Tears.

 “Whoever wishes to foresee the future must consult the past; for human events ever resemble those of preceding times. This arises from the fact that they are produced by men who ever have been, and ever shall be, animated by the same passions, and thus they necessarily have the same results.”   (Machiavelli)

    I really like your take on the prompt and the way you’ve paired up those beautiful photos with the quote. Present and the past…the connection that is always there – even if people sometimes choose to forget about it.

    1. Thank you so much. I guess, as a history teacher, I tend to make that connection automatically.
