Monday-Memorial Day

Morning - A rainy morning. The porch, coffee and thinking about those that didn’t make it home.  Not mourning just remembering. That’s the way they’d want it.

    Beautiful morning.

    Blessings to all who have made it this far.

    The big wheel just keeps on turning, we wait and wonder.

    Afternoon. Prayers and remembering those who made the sacrifice.

    Good afternoon. 

    Was driving by this little mountain cemetery last night and saw this. Thought it was worth stopping by and paying my respects. Not something you see much of anymore but figured he was a warrior and deserved to be recognized.

    We have quite a few in the city cemetery in Albany.

    I see them from time to time. 

    It's unusual to see this in North Georgia though.

    "During the U.S. Civil War, Rabun County was one of only five Georgia counties that did not declare secession from the Union.[6] Although the county was largely untouched by the Civil War, the area did border on anarchy during that time. The county was described by some as being "almost a unit against secession." One of the county's residents recalled in 1865 that "You cannot find a people who were more averse to secession than were the people of our county." He stated that "I canvassed the county in 1860–61 myself and I know that there were not exceeding twenty men in this county who were in favor of secession."[7] Despite its overall loyalty to the Union, Rabun County did field two regiments for the Confederate cause: Rabun 24th Regiment, Georgia Infantry, Company E, Rabun Gap Riflemen; and Rabun 52nd Regiment, Georgia Infantry, Company F, Beauregard Braves."
