This tombstone is inscribed with the following.
In Memory of General John Neville
who departed this life
July 29, 1803

  •   locust_furnace @epiceric4 Right. So much of the fighting was up this way. There are still many forts from that time period and the French & Indian War. Plus we have Gettysburg here. Its a good historic state. I am still finding new (to me) history here! 13h
  •   epiceric4 I've been to Gettysburg before and it is Awe inspiring for sure. @locust_furnace we have a bunch of Revolutionary War stuff but it is more on the coast. This side of state we have Civil War 13h
  •   locust_furnace @epiceric4 I have only drive through GA on my way to Florida. My brother was down there before going to Iraq. He said, it was hotter in Georgia than in Iraq. Haha 12h
  •   epiceric4 Yea it does get pretty miserable here for sure @locust_furnace I'd rather live in Arizona than here. The heat and humidity will get you here 12h
  •   locust_furnace @epiceric4 I prefer the cold. Its a nice 52℉ here now. Was just saying last winter we had some good air temps here, -40℉. Good time to ice fish! But thats deadly temps. 12h
  •   epiceric4 I'm getting to where I want the cold. It's 80 here right now @locust_furnace 12h
  •   graveyard_dead @locust_furnace Fantastic find. 10h
  •   locust_furnace @graveyard_dead Thank you! 10h

Hetalia is the reason why I partly wanted the axis powers to have won WW2, but at the same time, I root for the allied forces ಠ_ಠ

  •   lilbomeep Sept 22. Today is When Nathen Hale is hanged 4w
  •   jacobphillips116 Nathan Hale wasn't a Brit, he was actually an American school teacher that was hanged as a spy by the British. He was a really cool guy and George Washington really liked him and felt terrible that he got caught (he really hadn't had the proper training to be doing that and shouldn't have been sent on that assignment) 4w
  •   lilbomeep @jacobphillips116 lol I love when people correct me with history but everything else not history related I hate been corrected XD 4w
