You'll probably find it in the local newspaper there in W. Virginia. Look under the Police Reports/arrest section where Indecision beat up on his wife. That's his idea of winning a toughman contest.

I doubt that I will make it to that one altho I want to. Is this the one on the other side of Orangeburg? I have seen the signs for it...or is it near Andrews? Ohh, I see Bamberg Co...okay, no, I doubt I will make it...Isn't this the only Civil War site that the state has preserved? I was there years ago when I stayed in Georgetown for awhile. I bet it is fun!! When is the reencatment at Cowpens?

MtnBred, Rivers Bridge State Historic Site is one of ther few War of Northern Aggression sites the state has preserved. Fort Sumter in Charleston Harbor and Battery Warren in Charleston among them. I will have to get the date of the reenactment at Cowpens. I do believe it is a revolutionary war reenactment. we have a good many of those in our state also. We do our best to preserve our southern heritage here in SC and are constantly fighting the PC establishment and the National Association of Constantly whining colored people here.

Duh..dummy me!! Too many things going on at the moment. I went to a reencactment somewhere near Clemson a couple of years ago. Way out in the middle of nowhere! It was fantastic! I just happened across the sign and had some time, so I went. The horses is what amazed me!! Fine animals. If anyone has never been to one of these, please take the time to go. It is well worth it if you are interested in this time period and history in genral.(I say every year that I am going to Cowpens, but have yet to make it for the action!)

My work scheldule keeps me off kilter and half crazy most of the time. Hopefully that is going to change soon.

mtnbred, you are talking about the battle of Central, SC up near the NC mountains near Clemson University. Our unit Co. H, 13th SCVI, Palmetto Battalion goes up there every year to fight back the yankee invaders of our beloved Dixie. it is a great event and all of us enjoy doing it every year.

That could possible be "Larry" or "indecision".

If it is, he looks exactly as I would have expected.

I don't believe he'd hit a woman.
I do believe he has a very active fantasy life but I'm still waiting for an internet reference.
I'd pay to see Trans and Larry in the ring for a grudge match.
As for myself, I never enjoyed getting my face mashed.

I agree. Glad that day is over for me, or at least I hope so. Had my azz whipped more than once but the arrestee always went to jail with an additional, very expensive charge. LOL

Oh, she was the trophy.
Anyway, I thought he was much older and ready to retire.

Well then, my apologies to Larry for doubting him.
I guess the two of you respect each other.
Someone should (lol).
