Stories of American Heroes - Brought to you from the "Home of Heroes" - Pueblo, Colorado

I'm Douglas, your tour guide

Welcome

Hi there, my name is Douglas and I will be your tour guide on the first floor. Yes, I am a real person. I'm 12 years old and live in Pueblo, Colorado. My mom and dad are the people behind the "Hall Of Heroes" project. Many of the living heroes you will meet here are personal friends of mine. From time to time I'll share my photo album of them with you. If you really want to know more about me you can click on the TOUR GUIDE icon at the bottom of this page to visit my profile site. I have been lucky enough to meet a lot of interesting people and I will share some of my pictures with you there.


Birth of A Nation

View of the first floor of the Hall of Heroes Museum, from the center BIRTH OF A NATION exhibitAs you join me at the middle of the museum you can't help but notice the large centerpiece with the flags and model of Washington, D.C. That will be our first stop. To the left is a display to a special friend of mine named Carl Sitter. Mr. Sitter served in the Marines during World War II and Korea and received the Medal of Honor. You will get to meet Mr. Sitter along with some other heroes from my hometown a little later on.

The shiny walls in the background have the names of more than 3,400 heroes. We call it our "Wall of Honor". These are the names of all the men and one woman who received our Nation's greatest award, the Medal of Honor. Upstairs you can see one of our "American History Rooms". Maybe you can see the statues of four of our presidents from here. You'll get a closer look later when you visit the second floor.

I know its kind of hard not to notice all those pretty flags in back and we will learn about them a little further along in our tour. Also you'll notice the large model of our Capitol City.   Washington, D.C. does not belong to any state or any person, it belongs to EVERY American.  It is kind of like our Country's home. YOUR HOME!   I'll also be telling you all about it a little further along.


There are actually 3 individual displays in this exhibit:

Click here to go to the CAPITOL CITY exhibit

OUR CAPITOL CITY

Here you can learn all about Washington, D.C., our Nation's Capitol.  Your visit to this display will teach you how the city was chosen, built, and give you an on-line tour.

The best way to tour the Hall of Heroes is to take the tours in order...if you have the time.  You can do this by just clicking on the Click on the larger arrow below for your next page arrow at the bottom of each page.  If you want to skip an exhibit, just click on its button and I'll meet you there to tell you all about it.  Any time you want to go to a different exhibit, display, or floor, you can click on the compass.  It will bring up our hyperlinked map to all available sites.

Click here to go to my own special page

Any time you see my image on a button like the one at the left, that means there is a "hidden" page in the basement...we call it the ARCHIVES...that has some additional information if you REALLY want to do some further study.  Some items in the archives are kind of dry...others are really fun and interesting.  It's up to you if you want to visit the Archives when you see this button.  Right now if you click on it you will find a special page that will tell you about ME.  You can either go there or get on with the tour.


If you don't want to visit the archives, click on the arrow to begin the tour at our first exhibit, or click on the compass to bring up a map of all the displays and exhibits.
