Here is Where: discovering America's great forgotten history by Andrew Carroll
Andrew Carroll writes:
"Here is where it all began: The Exchange Place PATH Station in Jersey City, New Jersey, just across the Hudson River from Manhattan. This is the spot that sparked my almost compulsive desire to seek out unmarked history sites throughout the country." Read the book to find out what little remembered incident happened at The Exchange Place PATH Station in 1863 or '64 - exact date unkown.
The author goes on a journey across the United States to search for unmarked sites of interesting but largely forgotten history.
