Return To Innocence

Civil War Battlefield
Averasboro, NC

Nearly a thousand men lost their lives on this very field, about a hundred and fifty years ago. Many others, who would eventually recover from their ordeal, had spent hours through the day and night, laying in the dirt, leaking fear and anger into the earth, as well as the fluid from their wounds.  

It was a small two day battle that took place during the last stands of the American Civil war. It was a sprawling plantation farm then, producing any one of the south's economic staples; either cotton, tobacco, or sugar. Although the acreage has been divided among other families through the years, it is a country farm, once again, growing some sort of grain.

But somewhere between then and now, it was scarred and torn apart by the conflict of man; seared by the fires of cannons and rifle rounds, and stained of blood and tears. 

It's amazing how a patch of land can move beyond it's traumas over time, and carry on with fertility and growth. Time softens the memories. Time loves the land with sun and rain, and encourages it to thrive under the beautiful blue. It moves beyond it's past, but can it ever really forget? Does the land forgive us our trespasses?
