Major General Nathanael Greene of the American Revolution was General George Washington's most trusted General. Why he had that trust and how he earned it and maintained it is, in itself, a template for citizenship and patriotism for every generation. General Greene's dedication and service to this country was evident to his peers and fellow patriots during his lifetime. The Marquis de Lafayette proclaimed of him ".in the very name of Greene are remembered all the virtues and talents which illustrate the patriot, the statesman, and the military leader." The only men to have served all eight years of the Revolution at the rank of General were George Washington and Nathanael Greene.

Some of the ladies had lunch at The Pharmacy a restaurant in Southport, NC. There were some very delicious items on the menu.
This was a chicken salad dish and it was delicious.
This was a fish dish and you were to put the fish in a wrap. Those are French fries in the cone.
