    Congratulations, Doug! The park looks great. Saw some visitors looking at it the other day.

    I also owe you a debt of gratitude. At the dedication, I got to talk to fellow SC Loyalist descendents, touch a button worn by a soldier in my ancestor’s regiment, and have plans to attend a Battle of Kettle Creek anniversary event and perhaps meet some distant Lindley cousins there. So, thanks!!

    Oh my goodness! What wonderful pics and what a wonderful day! Everything went off without a hitch…just like the day of the battle, I’m sure…no miss fires noticed or noted in the history books! Job well done! 🙂
