There are many expressions we use today that stem from colonial days to the late 1800's which became part of our everyday language. Upper crust, cut and dried, dyed in the wool---there are so many phrases to explore including references to cooking, spinning, farm life, industries, travel, and household items. We’ll explain these everyday expressions as we learn intriguing American history about our way of life.
