Take a field trip to Bladen County where you will visit the home of General Thomas Brown




          
This is the Bladen County home of General Thomas Brown. A few members are shown in the photo.












The Lord Craven Chapter of Colonial Dames met on Saturday, September 16 at 11:00am to visit the home of General Thomas Brown, an American Revolution Patriot and Hero. It was built over two hundred years ago on the bank of the Cape Fear River. A member of the Carver's Creek Methodist Church, the site of the beginning of the Methodism in Bladen County was a tour guide for those who attended. Linda Rivenbark provided the lunch that was served that day. She brought fried chicken, potato and broccoli salads, biscuits and cakes. This was a real southern meal. Thank you Pat Tucker for the great photos.

Today is National POW/MIA Day

On this day, the third Friday in September, we observe National POW/MIA day to honor those who were prisoners of war and those who are still missing in action. According to the U.S. Defense POW/MIA Accounting Agency, there are currently 82,468 personnel missing from past conflicts, with the great majority (73,077) missing from WWII.  Perhaps if we are so fortunate as to enjoy a happy hour today, we can say a prayer for those Americans who remain unaccounted for, "you are not forgotten".
