In preparation for my next documentary about an early Revolutionary movement that started in North Carolina by a group called the Regulators, I visited the reconstructed Capitol seat established by the then Governor Tryon in New Bern (in those days, known as Newberne), NC.
It was a great visit, well orchestrated by the communications manager and I was able to capture many site shots and gain insights into the times surrounding the 1771 Battle of Alamance.
I decided to publish this external shot to share the view of the symmetrical Georgian architecture of the place. Inside shots are prohibited without license so I will not share these until the documentary is official!
This photo is of the Burlington (Pine Hill) military cemetery all decorated for Veteran’s Day. It serves as a poignant reminder of those who lay their all on the line for the freedoms which we have. May we never forget that the cost of freedom is high, demanding even the lifeblood of many.
To all Veterans of every war fought to secure this land, I salute you and thank you.
