79 AD Mt Vesuvius erupts, buries Pompeii & Herculaneum

On August 24, 79 AD Mt Vesuvius erupted and buried the Roman cities of Pompeii and Herculaneum. Thousands of people were killed, few escaped. The map shows the location of the 2 cities, both of which were within 15 miles of the volcano. I am not sure of the population of Pompeii, but if my memory serves me correctly, Herculaneum had a population of about 5 - 6 thousand people.

It was also on this day in 1814 that the British sacked Washington D.C. and burned the White House in what became known as the War of 1812. In was also in the War of 1812 that future president Andrew Jackson defeated the British in the Battle of New Orleans.

My day was another busy one. I am usually in my office between 6:30 and 7 AM, sometimes a little later. I wanted to get an early start today because I had a stack of mail I had to get answered and processed. Most of the mail is handled at the office. But there is some mail that needs my personal attention and I haven't been able to get to it for about 10 days. So I spent most of the day taking care of the 6 - 8 inch stack. Most of it is
now done.

About 7 this evening I went over and took a couple of picture of our new welcome sign at the entrance to the Soldiers of the Cross Bible Camp and have them posted here.

I was just told that Heritage Connection finished recording the final songs for their CD which we will have (hopefully) at congress. Of course, after they listen to it them they may decide it isn't good enough - Musicians!

The printer called today and said he has finished printing my book, The last Church and is shipping it to us today. We should have it here by Monday or Tuesday.

Nancy Dorr is an independent film producer and I have been talking with her about the inclusion of The Knights in a documentary she is producing. She plans on showing it at the Sundance Film Festival and other film festivals that feature independent film producers. I spoke with her at length today and she is considering coming to the White Christian Heritage Festival in Pulaski on October 20th.

I appreciate all of you who faithfully support this work. There is no way we could stay on the battle front without you.

If there is anyway you can come to congress please do so. It is going to be absolutely wonderful. Derick Black, son of Stormfront founder Don Black is flying in next week and will be broadcasting our congress over Stormfront radio.

I sure would like to see you. God bless! Feel free to leave any comments you wish about any of the posts. Just click on the word comments at the end of this post.

Hail the New Dawn!
