not West End for wine but i’ll have a
belgian beer at Milltown then we can
walk round the back of Carr Mill Mall
to get groceries. meet me at Silent Sam

to head back from campus, Silent Sam being
the Daughters of the Confederacy monument to
the Confederacy opened by the carr in Carrboro
general Jule who gave the address ‘Unveiling

of Confederate Monument at University’. you
can read choice extracts in the Carrboro
Centennial Commemorative which says unveiling
or horsewhipping blacks weren’t his legacy but

the town
the town named for electric power.
