My second brush with greatness , was a rainy day in the country with Phillip Gerard. Phillip is not only a great musician but the offical historian of the Civil War for Our State magazine. Throught out the 5 years of 150th anniversary events, Philip brought us a collection of fresh tales and newly researched stories that occurred in the Old North State published monthly in Our State. <>
