Re: Amana Colonies Anyone?

Emily, thank you, superb post!  I'm glad you brought up the term "The Change" because I forgot to in my post....but your point about there being people alive who remember the colonies before "The Change" is one I hadn't thought about....they'd, of course, be up there in age,but I'd love to talk to some of those people....there's no better record of history than someone who had actually lived it....How  I would have loved to have sat down and interviewed Albert Woolson....he was the last living Civil War vet who just died in 1956. Can you imagine being able to sit down with a Civil War vet in, say, 1952 and talk to someone who had first-hand experience in the war?  Wow.
