Today we set out from the Goldsborough Bridge Battlefield
and at about 8:30 am. We walked through some very pretty countryside along the
Neuse River. I started the day walking with Julia.
After lunch, Andrew from Duke Homestead joined me for a
couple of hours. Then I was joined by Conner, my college roommate and close
friend. Conner and I completed the last 3 miles to Princeton together.
Princeton gave us a very warm reception. There was a short wreath laying
ceremony at the veterans memorial downtown where I met several veterans.
Then, the Mayor read a proclamation making May 16, 2015
Philip Brown day in Princeton, North Carolina. I was honored, humbled, and
flattered all at once. It was truly and awesome experience. The day concluded
with a meal of friend chicken and some much needed rest. Tomorrow I set out for
May 16, 2015
