    " sometime happened, there was a company of cavalry out on drill, to engage in a sham fight with the battery...for while cavalry swept down on the guns at a gallop, with sabers flashing in the air, the cannoneers with guns loaded with blank cartridges, of course, stand rigid...until they are within a few rods of the battery. Then the lanyards are pulled..."

    If you are in the area dont pass up this event! This is a great way to get more visitors over to the island, as well as Fort Mott, which is really in need of preservation efforts. 1st person, hanging out in the only replicated Confederate POW barracks in the world, garrison duty, possibly being able to sleep at the awesome deal. If youve never visited the island do it! This event has great potential so give it your support.

    "The Northern onslaught upon slavery was no more than a piece of specious humbug designed to conceal its desire for economic control of the Southern states." Charles Dickens, 1862

    “These people delight to destroy the weak and those who can make no defense; it suits them.” R.E. Lee referring to the Federal Army.
