Southeast U.S.

Thanks to Hurricane Irma I received another all expenses paid trip to the southeastern states. Brief stops in Columbia, S.C., Jacksonville, FL. and then two weeks in Atlanta. Here are a few pictures.


State Capitol of South Carolina in Columbia, S.C.


Old oak trees on the Capitol grounds.


Damage to the South Carolina Capitol building from one of General Sherman’s cannon balls.


South Carolina House of Representatives


The General still has a place of honor in the South Carolina State House.


Castillo de San Marcos, St. Augustine, FL.

Soldier’s quarters. Rough living.

Stone Mountain, Georgia. A Georgia legislator has actually called for this immense carving to be removed. Good luck with that.


Jefferson Davis, Robert E. Lee, Thomas (Stonewall) Jackson.


Kennesaw Mountain National Battlefield Park. Not a lot to see as battlefield’s go but the Visitor’s Center has a nice museum and it shows an interesting film. There was a big crowd at the park but most had come to hike the mountain.


About Truman

I find myself on the downside of my sixtieth year, older but not old, wiser but not wise, and still wondering what I want to be when I grow up.
