Lines about 'Place' in Spartanburg

I have walked inside a magnolia tree,
discussed kudzu removal and eaten
their South Carolina-style pulled-pork barbecue,
listened to Appalachian-style fiddle and strolled
up the Green River Road
where Banastre Tarleton ordered his British Legion
into an over-confident assault on the Continental regulars--
Cowpens, 1781--the gloomy winter morning light.
So am I here yet?

I know chiggers from Missouri, thanks very much.

Hello from a fellow ASLE attendee. I didn't get a chance to talk to you after the panel this morning, but wanted to tell you how much I enjoyed it. It is great to see this type of discussion going on at ASLE!

Thanks, Keri. I had to leave quickly after the session for the airport, so I could not stick around.
