Eastover Heritage Day

Eastover, North Carolina

(4 May 2013)

 

Over the past several years we have participated in the Eastover Heritage Day Event the first Saturday in May by providing our US Military through the ages and firing our gun at the end of the days activities.  The Old Plank Road which was used by General Johnston's retreating Confederate Army and also by General Sherman's Army advancing north towards Averasboro runs through a section of what is now called Eastover. We were invited to participate in this event again this year by the Eastover Civic Club but due to that evenings Wedding Rehearsal and Lindsey's Wedding the next day, we elected to only participate in the Eastover Heritage Day Parade on the morning of the 4th of May.  Annette Fornoff drove the truck and Captain Stanley stood on the trailer with the gun and limber answering questions about Civil War Artillery and the 10 Pound Parrott Rifle.  Our participation was much appreciated by the town.
