I went on a lovely day out with my student H yesterday to Fort Macon. What a cool place that is.
I didn’t know we were going. It was completely impromptu. I thought we were just going for coffee and ended up there.
Which was awesome.
As soon as we walked up the path I heard the drums playing. Then when we got to the bridge I saw prisoners. I asked Him if it was a prison and she said No. I then heard Glen Miller music playing which means WW2.
I asked if it was a WW2 base for anything, she said she didn’t think so.
I then said were the Spanish here and she said she didn’t think so.
Turns out I was right. All of the above. I would love to go back and cross those prisoners over.
It was an incredible place. I’d be interested to see if they are horse meat. Because I saw them cutting up a dead horse for food.
I only just found out this is Blackbeard Territory as well. So I’ll definitely explore this area again.
I wish I’d had the presence of mind to hit record. Lol
Next time……and there will be a next time. But I’ll come back with camera’s.
American Civil War history,….I just can’t get enough of it.
