The republic of Winston

So as part of our county trivia, just recently we learned that when Alabama seceded from the US, that Winston County seceded from Alabama and declared itself the Republic of Winston.

It is also 97% white, and judging from the Wikipedia demographics, there are 9 African Americans in the entire county.

County count is 21, and we are currently 1:33:25 ahead of pace. We're definitely looking like a potential sub-20 hr time.

Yeah, seriously, I want to hear more updates about what you are doing. What are you talking about? What stupid theme songs are you making up? No more boring county trivia. :-)
