The multiple platforms of "The Homeplace Saga" stories
1. Part II of the Centennial/Founding stories continue on this blog, tomorrow, Friday and next Friday. Part III - the Civil War years and stories will follow.

These stories will be expanded as time goes by. Sign up to follow both of these series at HubPages to get notified when new stories are published.

Thanks for caring! ;-)
