Greetings to all folks near and far. Keep those fires burning and cozy up with quilts and a good book. Getting the family together, including any pets, and getting cozy is the best way to spend winter evenings.

Here is my latest article from the Appalachia site at

The first rebellion in the American colonies began with an uprising lead by Nathaniel Bacon in 1676.

Historians have had differences of opinion regarding Bacon's Rebellion. Some side with Governor Berkely, others with Bacon. Then there are some that say it was a case of two stubborn men fighting each other to prove who was better.

What do you think?
