Tomorrow is time for another banzai run. I’m speaking to the Rufus Barringer Civil War Roundtable in Pinehurst, NC. It’s an hour drive from here to there. I speak tomorrow night, and we’re going to stay in Pinehurst tomorrow night.

Our friend Teej Smith, who lives in Pinehurst, and who is the program chair for the CWRT, just had major jaw surgery two days ago, so she’s not particularly up to having house guests. Consequently, instead of staying until Saturday, we’re going to head to Greensboro on Friday for a tour of the Guilford Courthouse Revolutionary War battlefield and then start heading north. We will spend Friday night somewhere in Mt. Airy, North Carolina, the hometown of Andy Griffith and the model for Mayberry, R.F.D., and then come home on Saturday. It’s another banzai run….

I will post photos from Guilford Courthouse once we get home.

    I spoke to the Pinehurst group a number of years ago and they are great. Teej Smith is such a gracious hostess and they really made me feel at home. It was my first time in Pinehurst, and they made sure it was a pleasant one. Enjoy your visit!

    Jeb Stuart walked the streets of Mount Airy believe it or not. The Stuart Family picked up their mail, shopped, went to church in the “Granite City.”
    Stuart’s Birthplace, Laurel Hill is five miles outside town in Patrick County Virginia.

    I hope to see Susan and her husband.

    Eric, have they developed a time warp in Columbus? I think it is a touch more than “an hour drive” from where you are to there 😉
