After Independence Day a couple of US related historical items.
Has life moved on? On this day in 1863 the US began its first military draft.......exemptions cost $300!
And also on this day in 1928 sliced white bread was sold for the first time by the by the Chillicothe Baking Company in Missouri. The company is still going strong and even has a Sliced Bread Visitors Centre if you are in that part of the World. http://www.homeofslicedbread.com/
We are off to our own bit of history at Avebury. Two slightly longer routes. The option to shorten the shorter route is come back along the A4 fromn Avebury and pick up the route at Calne.
