Last weekend RJ and I rode somewhere in the 500 mile range. Now this was early February and we started on the 6th, a Friday. The ride down to Ft Fisher was a bit cold and I put on the max amount of snivel gear, but we didn’t need anything more then riding leathers for the rest of the trip.
Now I have been to Ft Fisher a few times before, but I was hoping this early in the year we’d pretty much have the place to ourselves so I could practice taking photos and we mostly did. Photography is an extremely perishable skill set despite being pretty well trained in it.
Visiting these battlefields is a surreal experience for me. When ever I visit a place my people we defeated I cannot help but be sadden at the loss of liberty, life and property inflicted on us by a power mad people who’s lusted for tax revenue more then they valued the lives of Southern men, women and children. The damnyankees have done an outstanding job covering up their war crimes and cries for genocide of Southern Whites. The idea of limited government was forever destroyed when my forefathers where killed and defeated, their farms burned, women raped and land sold off for a fraction of the value.
Course their lust for cheap labor has pretty much meant their demographic replacement, though those who replaced them picked up the yankee’s ways surprisingly quick.
By the time the damnyankee made it to North Carolina it was all over but more crying so all our local battlefields are solemn places to me
There is a military rec center there so it cost us like $30 to rent a cabin. This is my favorite time of year for our coast, and rooms are as low as $35 a night for an ocean view.
Here is a little info about Ft Fisher.
The South was Right is a must read, though I don’t care for his tone in many places (playing the victim card always makes you sound like a pussy and a commie) but it’s an important 1st stop in understanding what really went down.
The Real Lincoln should be on that list too. The damnyankees have made a demigod out of a blood thirsty tyrant who was beholden to the yankee business elite of the day who themselves could not survive without the tax code which transferred wealth from the South to the North or compete against a low tariff nation next door to them
The book, War Crimes Against Southern Civilians is another must read. Its hard for most folks to understand the truth of what was done because the damnyankee has done such an excellent job of controlling the narrative
