Compatriots & Friends,

On Saturday 28 March 2020, the 1st Lt. W.E. James chapter of the Descendants of Confederate Veterans will be hosting a field trip to Kinston, NC to see the CSS Neuse Ironclad. The Ironclad is in the Neuse Interpretive Center Museum in the downtown district.The museum has an elevator to assist those that may have issues with climbing steps. Many artifacts found on the Neuse are on display. Across the street is the only full size replica of a Confederate Ironclad in the world, the CSS Neuse II. We will be able to go inside and see the outstanding workmanship. Down the street is the Kinston-Lenoir County Visitor Center which is a museum in itself. For dinner we will be going to King's BBQ & Chicken Restaurant. In the foyer of the restaurant is a display of many relics from the two battles that occurred in Kinston. Those two are the Battle of Kinston and the Battle of Wyse Fork. Both battle locations are close to town, which will make it easier for us to visit. Everyone should meet by 7:00 am at the South of the Border attraction, Hot Tamale Restaurant parking lot, at I-95 & US-301, Hamer, SC 29547, at the SC/NC state line. We will then leave SOB and be in Kinston around 9:30 am. Museum opens at 9:00 am. I am working with an official with the Chamber of Commerce in Kinston who will possibly be providing us with a small bus to get us to various sites. We are receiving a discount on admission into the museum at $3.00 a person instead of the normal $5.00. I am going to need to know how many are going on this trip as I will be letting the locations we are visiting know so they can prepare for us. I will need a head count by Monday, 23 March 2020.

This will be an excellent day trip for many. Several that are going plan on staying over night at one of the local motels. Family, friends and children are welcomed on this adventure. Email me or call me if you have any questions. See attachments below.

PLEASE NOTE; Because of all the robocalls I get, if you call me and I don't answer, please leave a message because otherwise I will block any phone number I do not recognize. I would hate to block a legit call. Thank you.
