This is an image By George Barnard looking west from Factor’s Walk.  Barnard had a practice of combining

interesting cloud formations with various landscapes to give the image an over all more appealing aesthetic.

Note the large size of the clouds and how they “bleed” into the land and river.

There is an interesting story about the above image at


The Hermitage, McAlpin Plantation

Henry McAlpin’s 400-acre plantation was located on the Savannah River, just north of the city of Savannah–the heart

of a rice-growing region. McAlpin was one of the wealthiest men in the South. He didn’t just rely only on crops for his

livelihood; he manufactured bricks, rice barrels, cast iron products and lumber, too.

Colonial Cemetery, 1900

Established about 1750, it was the original burial ground for the Christ Church Parish. The cemetery

was enlarged in 1789 to become the cemetery for people of all denominations.  More than 700

victims of the 1820 Yellow Fever epidemic are buried in Colonial Park Cemetery.  The cemetery was

already closed to burials before the start of the Civil War and no Confederate soldiers are buried there.

But the war did leave its mark on the cemetery. Federal troops took over the cemetery grounds

during their occupation of Savannah and many of the graves were looted and desecrated. It has

been said that Union soldiers changed the dates on many of the headstones.

  3. its time for the real truth,about the county guardians,and executers,and administrators,commission by the confederacy,and ack of congress,handed down to the county corts,same power as the suprem justice,abuse of athority,pinkerton guards of these people and childrens,from the horseford mills, to the emory and henry college,i got it all,pinkerton kill these people and took there land,by the counties,these men was officers,and soldiers,had the counties in terror,for the negro,and the indenture people.pinkerton is nothing but confederate,just under different names,e,s,g,r national guardmen,here in mecklenburg co, under cover,from abraham lincoln in 1865

  5. i just want yall to kn ow that,every word that i talk about is the factual truth,and i have documents to back all of it up,im larry smith,you can contact me any time,1,434,738,5111

  6. do you know about branch boatage,this is the slave cargo,own by pinkerton securityship,they haul slaves to westhill ware house peterburg virginia,to be executed,from the horseford mills st tammany farm virginia,and yes,there is a college that carry the name,branch boatage,the slave ship

  7. have you even thought about haveing a movie made,from all this so far,could be the movie of all time ya know,i got tons of imformation,still waiting,iv never bought out yet,each piece of paper has a story,its a bout time for the real civil war,pre civilwar to be seen and heard,pinkerton national guards agency was the real law and the master mind of the intire pre civil war,and civil war,lincoln had to give the people what they wanted,or he would never became the president,he had to put an end to slavery,an even to this day allen pinkerton still remain,or claim to be the federal goverment,by now,yall already know this,yes,the things you always heard about west virginia humans hybrids was very true indeed,an mecklenburg county and warren co, north carolina is at the for front of it all,y is people so afraid to talk about real things in life,i mean real history,my aim is not to critisize the people from the time,but to try in understand what they was trying to do,naturaly they was trying to figure out a way to endure slavery,it was there only way of life,

  8. pink services,was the guards for the county wards,the childrens of emory and henry college 1857,from the horseford mills,better known as the knights templar,bare the hook x on document

  9. the upmost event of the civil war,confederate conspiracy against the federal goverment,experiment to create a nation of hybrids to take over america,and this prove to be so,aron burr tried to lobby abraham lincoln to buy into this efford,but lincoln refuse,this is what the fugitive slave ack made possible for the southern white states,these hybrids was sold off of richard boyd plantation,and will s battle,of the congress iron clad,of roanoke rapid north carolina,there seem to be things that happen that nobody is talking about,did john brown really get hang,or was he bale out of jail,by richard boyd an william s battle an the martin brothers,or martin an tannahill an co,

  10. o, you dont have to believe whats written in black and white,robert dunn mcilwaine,bought hybrids women from the college of emory and henry college,took them back to his cottage farm in peterburg virginia,and the confederate soldiers got to have fun with them,this is one of the main reason that the union soldiers blew the two ware houses up,of westhill peterburg virginia,and the execution of slaves.willis cannon was the driver of the branch boatage of armistead g boyd as securtyship,and the horseford mills st tammany virginia,general picket and robert elee,branch boatage made many trips to westhill ware house,from the horseford post at st tammany virginia,willis cannon later gave way to cogbill and allen they then be came the ferry hauler of slave and confederate contraband.

  11. the most important documents in america,only 4 people hang for lincoln death,you didnt even touch the surface,know this today,that the south did execute abraham lincoln,and its a fact,documented fact,and you may start with west virginia emory and henry college,and come on down the line,

  12. so who really won the civil war,the confederates kill abraham lincoln,and the union capture robert elee,so which is greater,a general,or a president,but robert gave up a bit to early,naw i dont think that the confederate has ever lost any battle any where,

  13. every thing i say about these documents is over ten years of study,and if you happen to queston me,or debate me,wel guess what,you not debateing me,you are debateing the natural born facts by legal effords,i have about two thousand documents,i know each and every one front and backward,matter of fact,you can take one of the documents from the stack,i can tell you which one you have in your hand,new colony,new colony,new colony,richard boyd astates which is call the plantation,in the intirety its call the horseford mills,i hate to be the one to say this but,these superhuman bisils defts,got lost into society,pinkerton guards had to go after them,only think that could kill these bisils was an ax,right between the ears one blow just like killing a pig,bullets not much use,this all began in 1850 under the fugitive slave act,allen pinkerton 1850 e,s,g,r and lets not for get the man on the back of lincoln watch,l,e,gros,he was one that was from the horseford mills fort and gray,macon, mr gros made the wooden bottons and the uniforms for the confederate soldiers,lincoln said to end the war to preserve the union,ya done right,union boys was geting slaughter and ate slap up,bisils had to have there meds,flesh,which is call do bacon,one bisils could kill about two hundre union soldiers hand to hand,haint had a chance,1859 j,j daly commissioner was sent in to the counties,1854 his office was in boydton virginia horseford mills had to registered all there slaves and bisils,some of these bisils got away from the fort and out into society,thats when pinkerton guards had to go and find them and kill them,rreconstruction 1870,yes lincoln did know about this new colony aaron burr introduce to him even to day people whites and blacks are affected by this expirment that got started by francis nicholas bacon,but his middle name is nnot nnicholas,cant tell you that neither,———thank you so very much for your time,mr lassy smith,the man in the shadow,
