Because the United States needed a, “Home Department” to focus on the needs of our growing nation.
Anna Grace and I dropped in on the world’s largest library, the Library of Congress. America’s de facto “national” library of more than 167 million items was created in 1880 (the first public building in Washington, D.C. with electricity installed!) with Thomas Jefferson’s 6,400 personal books collection as the foundation.
The National Air & Space Museum, of course.

Tony had some morning convos at ORNL, so after collecting Jack at the adorable Knoxville airport we stopped at a diner-type place for a quick breakfast.
