Civil War in NE North Carolina

Burnside's Expedition and beyond

Had a nice long chat with the news reporter this morning. We covered a lot of ground and he was very excited about doing a story on the Fletcher Post. It should run this Sunday (November 14). The following Saturday it is our great hope that folks will come in to share their family stories with us - that is the 20th.

Everybody keep his or her fingers crossed, throw any split salt over your left shoulder, nail a horse shoe open-side up over any door (if you have a horse shoe and a door), and rub your rabbit's foot key chain. And to make sure bad luck does not find us - make sure you enter and exit a building through the same door.

Whew, hopefully our luck will hold and we will have some folks drop in on us!
