An examination of the great patriotic war

Forty-nine of us, forty-eight men and one woman, lay on the green waiting for the spike to open. We were too tired to talk much. We just sprawled about exhaustedly, with home-made cigarettes sticking out of our scrubby faces. Overhead the chestnut branches were covered with blossom, and beyond that great woolly clouds floated almost motionless in a clear sky.

Check that "youngster" Relic Hunter out!!! Those pants were 30 - 30, and I weighed and now the pants are 36 - 30, and I weigh Quite an exciting and eventful day at the mountain this past Tuesday.

The day started off by Nita getting kidnapped by "Bigfoot". Today was one of those special days that we will talk about years from now. Several months ago, two of my relic hunting buddies Patrick Stewart and Josh Tyree took a trip to an organized relic dig in South Carolina.

They recovered a nice variety of both Civil War and Revolutionary War artifacts. Patrick was fortunate enough to recover an extremely rare Revolutionary War pewter, 2nd Regiment, South Carolina Volunteers uniform button. What a fun day we had and hopefully inspired a coming generation.

A "tale of two tails"!!! I caught a glimpse of a large cat running through the woods in a stealth-like manner.

It was gone quickly, but I was almost sure it had a long tail. Weeks later, a picture was taken by the game camera located about yards behind the cabin where we had been feeding deer and raccoons. The position of the cat made it impossible to see the tail.

Some people thought it was a mountain lion, while others assumed it was a bobcat since there are no documented sightings of mountain lions in the Middle Tennessee area in recent years. Many weeks passed without further pictures of the cat. Just last week, another cat appeared moving sideways and obviously is not a bobcat.

One of the pictures was taken at noon this past Monday. People in the area are quite excited as some have reported seeing this type cat, but without pictures, they cannot be documented. We have decided to discontinue putting out food for the animals for fear we will cause them to be eventually attacked by the cat; and, we will no longer move about outside after dark not to mention keeping our eyes open during the day!!!

It is cool, however, to actually see an animal that was thought by many to be extinct from the area. Here is an interesting set of 4 photographs contrasting the panther and the bobcat.

These four photographs were taken by the same game cam at the same location a few days apart. Notice aside from the obvious the panther has a long tail and the bobcat has virtually no tailthat they are structurally different as well.Freedom did not come easy to India.

It took the enormous courage, perseverance and endurance of some great personalities of India who were born to be true patriots.
