America and history

The United States, compared say to most European countries, doesn't have a lot of visible history. Which might be a good job, given what it does with what it has.

Browsing around this morning I found that "Uncle Tom's cabin" is for sale. Surely it should be a museum?

And, there's a wonderful 2,000-year-old archaeological site. Or rather, it is a golf course, that occasionally, in a very limited way, lets the archaeologists in.
