As the country celebrated the historic March on Washington yesterday and its significance for the civil rights movement, we at the National Trust took the opportunity to ask people along the March route about places that inspire them and represent important connections to their heritage.
The answers we received reflected the diversity and history of our country, from the Statue of Liberty to a Latino neighborhood in New Mexico. People were full of hope and eager to keep their pasts -- both personal and shared -- alive.
