  1. Thank you for sharing. I wish I could have been there.

    1. Certainty and I just corrected some of the fonts. See you the first weekend in October, maybe !?

  2. Wonderful pictures. Maybe it's time to put the Confederate Flag on top and the
    other flag underneath. Thought you would like an update on the ghoul and the
    two UNC students. Thank God one student's father is an attorney:

    1. Thanks for the link and the update.


      :) They are in that order with the Betsy Ross on top for my 3X grandfather who is buried there and was an Ensign in the Revolutionary War, and saved his unit's flag after being wounded at the Battle of Brandywine.

      The Cavalry Battle Flag is for The Seven Blackbirds ( great uncles and a great grandfather) who fought in the WBTS and most were in cavalry units with two being buried there.

    2. Very cool. You are most fortunate, Sir.

  3. Brock,
    Again, on behalf of the Alamance Co. Rangers and myself, I would like to express heartfelt thanks for your and Dixie's gracious hospitality. Another successful PatCon has come and gone, and already I'm looking forward to the next one. We weren't sure at the past PatCons, that there would be another one. And we're sure not guaranteed the next. But, we'll just have to wait and see.

    1. Thank you for the most kind words, Sir and someone from Raleigh should be contacting you about joining the Rangers. Save your Confederate money boys, the South's gonna' rize again ! :)
