MLB Hall of Famer Harmon Killebrew Meet & Greet at Macon Braves Game

Many years ago now, I recall hearing that MLB Hall of Fame player Harmon Killebrew would throw out the first pitch at the Macon Braves baseball game.

The CSS Jackson Civil War Ironclad ship is really something to behold in person. The Woodalls ad mentioned the Water Witch which is very cool as well, but I like the ironclad. Continue reading

It’s on level terrain for the most part and a delight for young and old. Continue reading
