December 12, 2016 – This week, our time machine goes looking for America on the New Jersey Turnpike, and finds it at the birthplace of Ben Franklin, the Constitution, and cheesesteaks. We previously visited the City of Brotherly Love for our interview at McGillin’s Olde Ale House est. 1860 and Dr. Mütter’s Marvels, with side trips to check out the Paoli Battlefield and to meet Simon Cameron, “Lincoln’s Scandalous Secretary of War.”
Now, Irene Levy Baker joins us with an eye on touring more of Philly’s historic sites in her book, 100 Things to Do in Philadelphia Before You Die. And if you purchase your copy through 100ThingsToDoInPhiladelphia.com and mention you heard Irene on The History Author Show, Irene will sign your copy. It makes a great gift!
