After photo opportunities and a solid breakfast we set out

After lunch provided by the Johnston County Visitor’s Bureau
I was joined by two young men by the names of Lawrence and Tyler. They are
booth local Civil War enthusiast and wanted to take part in part of the day’s
walking. They were with me the last nine or so miles of the day.
Upon arrival in Smithfield I was received at the Hastings
House and was give some nice cold water.
Shortly after arrival we went to a cemetery for a short wreath
laying and remembrance ceremony. In the cemetery were approximately 15
Following the ceremony we weren't over to the Johnston
County Heritage Center for a dinner. So far, my time in Johnston County has
been quite enjoyable.
