Built over several centuries, Kenilworth Castle was founded in the 1120s by Geoffrey de Clinton, Lord Chamberlain to Henry I. The castle was significantly enlarged by King John at the beginning of the 13th century. John of Gaunt spent lavishly in the late 14th century, turning the medieval castle into a palace fortress. Ruined, only two of its buildings remain habitable today. by erika

The Audubon family began in Audubon Park—once home to Native Americans, and later, to New Orleans' first mayor, Etienne de Boré. During the Civil War, the location alternately hosted a Confederate camp and a Union hospital. In 1866, it was the activation site for the 9th Calvary, the "Buffalo Soldiers" whose defense of our country's western frontier made an indelible mark on America's African-American heritage. by phyllis
