    I'm a US History Teacher. I would like to go back to the Revolutionary period - just finished reading 1776 - would love to have been part of that era.

    I'd go back to the 60's. I was born in the 70s, a child of the 80's. I've always been told I was born in the wrong decade...so I'd like to see what the "right" one was like.

    I would go back to the month when I was 14 and discovered alcohol. I made out with some really icky guys and would like that to have never happened. Oh and to bitch slap that cigerette right out of my mouth.

    I love history so much, this is a toughy...
    I'd go back to the Salem Witch Trials. Don't ask me why, but I'm obsessed by it. Although I'd probably be accused of being a witch my first day there and would spend the rest of the month rotting in jail (or worse, hung or something).

    I'd totally love to spend some time in the 20's. It seemed like such a glamorous period. Of course that was the era of prohibition so it would have been cool to hang out with some bootleggers. lol

    Cool blog. Thanks for inviting me to check it out.

    I want to hang out a little with Joan of Arc. Seriously. Poor girl...I'd bring some psychology tests to find out if she was really just wacko or not.

    K.

    I'd like to go back to the 1920's to see how the great depression compares to what we are going through now.

    I'd want to go back to the mid-60's and spend a month as part of Martin Luther King's entourage. (He's the man I'd most like to meet.) The man had such profound wisdom and insight into the heart of mankind...

    i think the only time i would want to live is the lifetime i have been currently living...i was born in 61...before that it was pretty sucky to be a woman...i remember watching an i love lucy rerun where lucy and ethel were about to run out of the apartment to go somewhere but ethel said "wait! i can't go on the subway i've got blue jeans on!"...oy...

    maybe just maybe i would have wanted to be a native american living here before any settlers came...but look at the raw deal they ended up with...oy 2.0...

    I would like to go back and meet Jesus when he entered Jerusalem, and be there for the crucifixion, and afterwards.

    I also would love to sit in on the discussions while the Declaration of Independence was being drafted, as well as the Constitution.

    That is really hard. France in the medieval period, maybe. Or New York in the 70s during the disco era. For a month I'd love to live Saturday Night Fever...

    The 60's for the fashion.
