All-American Local Tourism

Off to Auburn, New York this weekend to see the Seward House, home to the wise man who Steve Sailer reminds us "came up with a brilliant plan to avert civil war at the last moment, only to have it shunned by a jealous Lincoln" (cf. Lincoln’s Folly), the Harriet Tubman Home, abode of a great woman who needs no introduction in modern America (rightly perhaps, but at the expense of others bumped out of the curriculum), the Willard Chapel, home to some stained glass by Charles Lewis Tiffany, and to watch the Class A Short Season New York–Penn League's Auburn Doubledays, named after another of the town's famous residents.
