A Hell of a Last 400 Years

As some of you know I have been reading a large number of American history books over the past few years, collecting old photographs and studying census data. I have a project in mind that involves intertwining my family's history with the history of America, specifically that of an area in Tidewater Virginia formerly know as Pamunkey Neck.

The other day in conversation with my wife about my latest revelations about colonial America I shook my head and closed with, "It sure has been a hell of a last 400 years."

I think that remark means I am finally ready to start writing.
