Here's a mural I took a picture of in Belfast in 2007 ( I believe). JEB Stuart is pictured here, a cavalary general in the C. S. A. military.

The 18th of December

Tomorrow is the 18th of December the actual date the Apprentice Boys closed the gates in 1688. The snow has been falling all last night and today and is lying pretty thick but the parade of the Broadway and Shankill Clubs will go ahead as planned. Both Clubs have the effigy's of Lundy made ready to set alight tomorrow night.

We may be having it bad,but nothing I'm sure to the experience of the Brave Thirteen who closed the gates on that winter day so long ago. We will remember them.
