Civil War Sites Still Worth a Visit

Whether you are studying a military history degree or just have a keen interest in either American history or military battles, there are a wealth of sites that you should visit. The American civil war is a huge part of American history and despite being long over, finishing in 1865, the issues that led to this historic war are still very relevant today. The Civil war decided what kind of country America would become, both morally, with the Northern win securing the end of slavery, and physically, allowing it to remain as one nation, instead of dividing up into states. However, amazingly, these are still issues today. Slavery is still present across the globe and treatment of minority groups is far from equal.

How to Save Money and Keep a Budget When Traveling

Travel has an exhilarating effect on the human spirit. Reality feels charged with novelty. Simple things like sunsets, courteous people, and perfect margaritas take your breath away when you’re away from home and free of all your regular routines. Naturally, travel does cost money, and for you to travel each year, or every few years, you need to start putting money away for your planned trip.

Unless you keep tabs of how much you’re spending, your chances of running out of cash when you travel are fairly high. That’s why it’s a good idea…
