I can’t believe I have been stuck in my house for 23 days except for a trip to the grocery store, Topper’s Pizza (twice) and Sonic. I am counting down the days until Amelia and Wiley can hopefully go back to school on April 30. I am going a little crazy but I have to be patient until Coronavirus goes away. I miss the beach so I ordered some beach bracelets from Pure Vida website. I hope I like them.
I stumbled upon a Facebook group called “Descendants of the Battle of Kings Mountain” today. I inquired about a application because I think Thomas Donaldson may have fought at Kings Mountain. I have a handwritten letter from my great- grandmother saying he did and I might have military proof. If I get accepted to the group, I get a certificate and a nifty lapel pin….Oooh ahhh!
I love going to Kings Mountain Natl Battlefield. It is one of my happy places. I can climb to the top of the mountain to the see the monument because of my Cerebral Palsy. I do try to hike part of the trail to the monument. They also have this interesting History Channel movie about the battle that I enjoy watching. I feel a spiritual connection to Kings Mountain so maybe Thomas Donaldson did fight at the battle.
