An Authentic Christmas. And I saw the real thing in a display case at the Mormon Battalion Historic Site in San Diego, California. The Site is a delightful place to visit, with friendly staff, an interactive multimedia presentation, and hands-on activities at the end. Learning about my ancestors' experiences left me with a greater appreciation for the air-conditioned van in which I had just crossed the Mojave Desert. Stop by and visit if you are ever in the neighborhood, and give a sigh for poor old Ezra and Sarah.
