Continuing the interview questions. #10.
If you could be present at any moment in history as a safe observer or unsafe participant, what event would you visit and why?
My knee-jerk reaction to the question is Ford’s Theater on the evening of 14 April 1865 to prevent John Wilkes Booth from assassinating President Lincoln. I believe we would have a much different country if Lincoln’s hand guided reconstruction and the first four years of emancipation.
For the poetry reference, I would like to have seen Tinkers, Evers and Chance turn a double play live and in person at West Side Park in Chicago in the year the poem was published (1910).
For the raw beauty, I would like to visit North America before Europeans arrived and have enough time to wander the whole country on foot. So let’s say 1480 to give me a 12 year walkabout, hoping the natives or nature did not kill off me along the way.
For music, I think I would have liked to have attended Peter, Paul and Mary’s Washington Monument concert rather than Woodstock.
