Here is Where with Andrew Carroll

Here is Where with Andrew Carroll on Fieldstone CommonLIVE: THURSDAY, 11 July 2013 at 1:00pm EDT

This week on Fieldstone Common, Marian Pierre-Louis interviews Andrew Carroll, author of Here is Where: Discovering America’s Great Forgotten History.

Here Is Where chronicles Andrew Carroll’s eye-opening – and at times hilarious — journey across America to find and explore unmarked historic sites where extraordinary moments occurred and remarkable individuals once lived. Sparking the idea for this book was Carroll’s visit to the spot where Abraham Lincoln’s son was saved by the brother of Lincoln’s assassin. Carroll wondered, How many other unmarked places are there where intriguing events have unfolded and that we walk past every day, not realizing their significance? To answer that question, Carroll ultimately trekked to every region of the country — by car, train, plane, helicopter, bus, bike, and kayak and on foot. Among the things he learned:

*Where in North America the oldest sample of human DNA was discovered

* Where America’s deadliest maritime disaster took place, a calamity worse than the fate of the Titanic

*Which virtually unknown American scientist saved hundreds of millions of lives

*How a 14-year-old farm boy’s brainstorm led to the creation of television

Here Is Where is thoroughly entertaining, but it’s also a profound reminder that the places we pass by often harbor amazing secrets and that there are countless other astonishing stories still out there, waiting to be found.

Andrew Carroll is the editor of several New York Times bestsellers, including Letters of a Nation, Behind the Lines, and War Letters, which inspired an acclaimed PBS documentary. Carroll’s book Operation Homecoming was the inspiration for an Oscar-nominated and Emmy-winning film.
