    Tag 7
    One of the site’s most historic moments occurred during the Civil War only a week before Gen. Robert E. Lee’s April 9, 1865 surrender at Appomattox. A detachment of Union Gen. George Stoneman’s Raiders came through Surry County April 1-2 and rode up to this Tavern, where Nancy , the wife of the proprietor, sat on the porch churning butter. When she refused to answer an officer’s questions, he threatened to take her son Jasper, who was by her side. Armed only with a mother’s iron will, Nancy finally spoke. She told the officer, “You’ll play the devil,” and he left her and her son alone. On June 5, 2007, the North Carolina Civil War Trails Program erected a permanent marker in front of the Tavern.

    ..yeah .. google gives you the standard "approx." address .. but the house is easily visible using street view and one guys Flicker photos confirm the pic you posted up of the trail marker also ..

    .. good to see the work that has been done since the google-cam came through .. the house looks really good now (in your shot) ..

    .. neat site .. and the google search revealed a wealth of similar sites in my home county also .. lol ..

    .. and the wife (bless her) just took the kids to her moms (yeah team) .. and the wife will be at work until the late hours (I'd try and pout, but it would be unconvincing) .. so now all I need to do is get off my arse and swap out that rear tube (to much kid-time yesterday to accomplish the task .. let's face it, really kewl Christmas toys were begging to be played with) ..

    I had planned on tagging the old courthouse but it the place is so run down and is a residence.
    Either way there are some fun roads. I made it to your tag and the new one back home without any main road for more then a mile or so.
    I was planning to pick up the NCTOR but I had left my GPS plugged up and it killed my 7 year old battery. So I did not want to shut her down yesterday.

    Tavern on Rockford Road, Dobson, NC .. I'll edit the address when I get home ..


    Sent from RevBill's iPhone using Tapatalk .. Ride Blessed y'all ..

    Edit ..

    Tag #007 - Mark York Tavern on Rockford Road in Dobson, NC .. that whole small town in one historical site .. absolutely amazing how many pre-Civil War buildings one right after another .. and I'd bet a bunch of them are RevWar era .. I wish I had gotten there earlier so I could have putted around the town and taken some more pics ..

    Here are a few more shots of the York Tavern ..

    I don't remember this horse being this color when I passed it a while back and in fact Google Maps shows it in the color I remember it .. as it looks brand spank'in new, it's recently become a horse of a different color .. or three ..

    .. okay .. the clues in the picture should be enough .. but JIC (just in case) you can't make out the clue .. here's some more ..

    This patriotic steed sits at the intersection of a State Route and a U.S. Route ..

    Clue #1 - The State Route has a number one "year" earlier than our nations Bicentennial Year ..

    Clue #2 - The State Route also bears the last name of a "CoverGirl" who was married to Billy Joel and graced the cover of Sport Illustrated three times in a row (no one else has been able to repeat that hat trick iirc).

    Clue #3 - When you find this State Route you can follow it until it runs into a U.S. Route that has three digits that add up to 14 .. interestingly, even though this as a U.S. Route it runs only in the State of NC from Mocksville, NC to Nags Head, NC.

    Clue #4 - An additional clue for the U.S. Route .. this section also bears the name of one of Rockingham County's larger cities (give away hint: according to Rockingham County's website this city is the second largest in the county) .. though that's honestly not going to narrow it down very much, some locals know it by this name.

    That is interesting, it was a different color last time I saw it. My aunt lives off of the us rt not far from there. I used to spend a lot of time on a lake near there, in the boat. Passed under teh US route to a nice little cove on the south side.
