North Carolina People, Places, and Things-August 28
I am the dad to five adult children. As they were growing up I attempted to remind them they were special and to implore them to learn something new. My goal was to do that daily.
In 2016 my goal is to learn something new daily on the people, places, and things that make North Carolina special. Everyday this year I am doing a post on what I have learned new.
Surfing the web in a hotel lobby in Tampa, FL I came across a nugget about North Carolina on a website about Texas. The website is called Lone Star Back Roads.
One of the posts talks about North Carolina monuments on the battlefield of Chickamauga. Which is located in Southeastern Tennessee.
The monument above is one of four North Carolina monuments at Chickamauga (there are two monuments to the 39th and one to the 60th; the poor 29th, the only other NC regiment at Chickamauga, has no monument, nor is there a general North Carolina monument), documents one of those claims.

I also liked that the author of the blog is from North Carolina.
