Sandy and Steve Dean in a trolly at the Baltimore Trolly Museum, Baltimore, MD. Baltimore has two rail museums, the B&O Museum
and the smaller Trolly Museum off of Fox Street. Steve was good enough to take us on a little tour of this.

Rare John Schultz photo.
A visit to Spartinburg, SC. On our travels back from Charleston, SC, we made a little detour and visited Roger in Spartinburg.
Later that day we visited the Cowpens battlefield. Cowpens is where outnumbered and out gunned American General Daniel Morgan
defeated the British, using the three lines of defense. This battle was the turning point in the South during the American War for
Donna and Steve's wedding. Yes, they took
their dogs to the wedding.
A Dip get together at Donna Higgins in 1993.

Sandy and Paul,
with Fort Delaware in the background. Fort Delaware was finished in 1859, just before the outbreak of the Amercan Civil War.
This coastal fort was designed to protect the coastline and Philadelphia from sea invasion. During the War, the Federals kept control
and used the island fort as a P.O.W. camp. Its guns were kept trained on the prison camp and Delaware.
The state of Delaware voted to secede from the union, but also prudently decided to do so AFTER Maryland seceded. When the
Maryland legislature planned to meet to make their vote to secede from the union, Abraham Lincoln had the whole legislature thrown in jail,
and kept them in there for the duration of the war. The move wasn't constitutional, but it probably saved Washington and Baltimore.
Fort Delaware is located on Pea Patch Island, near Delaware City. Pea Patch Island is between Fort Mott in New Jersey, and
Fort Du Pont in Delaware.
