Civil War in NE North Carolina

Burnside's Expedition and beyond



If you did not go to the MOA last Saturday you missed out.  Bruce, Charles, Alex and I were in rare form, rare form indeed.  We spent most of the day knocking o graves and waiting on that damned old buffalo soldier to say nothing.  And sure enough, he said nothing all day long.


If I were you I would not miss next year for a wheel barrel full of wooden nickles.


I had a blast and I appreciated being around all of those who know such much about our little piece of real estate up yonder in neNC.
