Small Town South

It's Sunday.  

The afternoon streets are nearly empty of people.  The first stop is Mount Pleasant, a crossroads town in North Carolina.  The day is warm and sunny.  Winter has come to an end on the day our clocks spring forward.

A few miles further down the road is the old brick village of Albemarle.  There are tall grain elevators near the tracks on the town's edge.  

A town big enough to have a courthouse is big enough to afford a memorial to the Confederate soldiers of the Civil War.  This memorial honors those who showed up and fought from Stanly County, North Carolina.
