Connemara - The Carl Sandburg Home

Another outing included a quick trip to Connemara, the last home of Carl Sanburg. Janet and I kidnapped Wendy to go along with us, and while it rained when we first arrived, the sun came out as we walked through the grounds and approached the house.

Carl Sandburg (January 6, 1878 - July 22, 1967) best known for his poetry ("Chicago"; "Fog"). He won two Pulitzer Prizes, one for his poetry and another for a biography of Abraham Lincoln. Carl Sandburg was recognized as "indubitably an American in every pulse-beat."
