The Band's "The Night They Drove Old Dixie Down" Performed by Lisa Hannigan, Glen Hansard and John Smith


A great American song (above performed by an Irishwoman and two Irishmen) that comes to mind as my family prepares for a Spring Break trip next week down South, to the City of Richmond, Colonial Williamsburg, the Jamestown Settlement, Easter at the Basilica of Saint Mary of the Immaculate Conception, Norfolk, which is ninety-nine percent African-American, Kitty Hawk, North Carolina, camping at the Croatan National Forest, and finally to Myrtle Beach, South Carolina, and its Family Kingdom.

Enjoy your vacation! Kitty Hawk is amazing -- one of my favorite vacation activities in North Carolina. If you get a chance, take a detour to Cape Hatteras and see the lighthouse. That's an amazing sight as well! I like to get to North Carolina every couple of years -- a wonderful state with a great deal of physical beauty.

Plus, if you can get to Weaverville in the western part of the state, you can go to the town graveyard and see Richard M. Weaver's tomb.

Thanks for the tips and wishes. I've only been through, never to, the Great State of North Carolina, although I've long felt a certain affinity between that state and the upstate portion of mine. Their Tuscarora Indians came up and joined our Iroquois Confederacy. Then, after the Revolution, our regions were the bastion of Anti-Federalism.

I'm looking forward to this trip.
