Vote for an 18th century Google doodle!

Thanks to @Edwardian_Era for pointing out this fun 18th century themed submission in the Google Doodle contest.  Google is having a contest with winners from each state in the final running.  The doodle selected from New York was drawn by twelfth-grader Barbara M.

Barbara's Google doodle is titled "Marie Antoinette's Versailles"
She writes:
"I would visit the Palace of Versailles during the early stages of the French Revolution to see if Marie Antoinette was truly as blind to the troubles outside the palace as she is portrayed. Her alleged posh lifestyle truly intrigues me."

  1. The niece of a friend of mine is the artist and wants to go to art school. Winning the doodle contest will mean she gets money towards doing that.
