Memorial Day is a time when hopefully all of us pause to remember the sacrifices of those who have served our country through the years.
This photograph shows the very nice Veterans Monument at Circle Hill Baptist Church Cemetery a few miles northeast of Two Egg.
Erected in 2002, the monument is inscribed to "To the memory of those who served to keep our country free." A beautiful United States flag waves from the monument. Illuminated at night, it is a moving sight among the quite pines surrounding the site.
The church, cemetery and monument are located on Circle Hill Road, just east of the Lovedale community.

I grew up with Mr. Hall's sons and remember him with great fondness. He will be missed.

I have started a new series on our sister Jackson County History site that you might find of interest.
For the next week or two, I'll be spending time looking at some of the significant historic and archaeological sites around Lake Seminole.
This 37,500 acre reservoir forms much of the eastern border of Jackson County and is important to the entire Two Egg area because of its availability for fishing, boating and other forms of recreation and especially for its impact on the environment and water table of the area.
To check out the series, just click here.

The sale was originally scheduled to end on the 30th, but I received a number of requests that I continue it through the weekend, so the special pricing is still available.
The book features the true history behind a number of Northwest Florida's most interesting legends. In addition to the story of how Two Egg got its name, it includes the true story of the ghost of Bellamy Bridge, Bristol's Garden of Eden story, the legend of Two-Toed Tom (alligator monster), a bigfoot story, another ghost story and a wide variety of other interesting historical footnotes.
It is available by visiting www.exploresouthernhistory.com/dalecox.
