As the road sign says: Welcome to Savannahs Point. Whether you go back to the (1400s to 2000s) theres a lot to write about and tell the reader. Even tourists and visitors want to know about you. There is the Civil war, and the Revolutionary War. Many events have taken place throughout our community and yours. We hear about the Pirate Blackbeard and his acts of piracy and other ships sailing the seas. Coastal North Carolina is known as the graveyard of the Atlantic. Did Blackbeard participate in these events? Maybe, he sure is an infamous figure today. Our community church people are generous, helping with the needs of others. The old timers can educate you on certain subjects, and they should be given their time. One of the best places to go to find out about your town or community is your local newspaper. They have resources to help you find out about people and events that have helped shape your community and town. Sad to say but many of our stories have passed, along with the storytellers. Ive learned in our community, about places, and events that I never knew existed, and a lot of it was by word of mouth. Still there are those literary searchers with pen and paper who hope to pick up that special treasure of a person, place, or thing to write about, something to share with you and me. This is just what I have written about, called Robbins Island.
