THE HISTORY OF CARTER COUNTY
This blog is the history of the Washington County Regiment but who where the people of the Watauga Valley; where did they come from?
Sherry Shook ,who finds the neatest things ever, sent me an interesting link to share with you. It’s about the people who settled this area, who they were and where they lived. She pointed out that there was one typo. The name “Joseph Ryder” should be JOSEPH HYDER. It’s a great article, easy reading and familiar names, Tipton, Carter, Boyd, Taylor and more are still reflected in our friends.

HORATIO HORNBLOWER SERIES ON U TUBE
Based on the novels by C.S. Forester, A&E’s Horatio Hornblower was a made-for-TV series that ran from 1998-2003. The eight individual films that make up this Collector’s Edition chronicle the unlikely rise of young Horatio from lowly midshipman to powerful commander, during the early years of the Napoleonic Wars. The stories are engaging and entertaining, the production grand and lavish, and the overall result brilliant.
