Two posts from my neck of the woods

Appalachian History just posted two stories in a row that are both pretty close to home, at least for me—one about a bloody labor incident here in my home county, the other about Middlesboro, KY, which is just over the state line.

Walking in Knox’s footsteps

Two guys from the magazine Patriots of the American Revolution are walking the entire 300-mile route along which Henry Knox hauled captured artillery from Ft. Ticonderoga to Dorchester Heights.  I’d never be able to pull off something like this.  If I do a day hike at Cumberland Gap, I feel like I should get a medal afterwards.
