Letter from the Editor Leaf Peeping You don’t have to travel very far to find beautiful Fall scenery with the turning of the leaves to bright reds and goldens. Sometimes, it’s no further than your own back yard! Will this be a vibrant year? What makes one year better than another for leaf peeping? If it is a dry summer, does that mean a muted color? I’m guessing that rains this past summer should perk up the colors and display some breathtaking backdrops. It has been estimated that as much as $300 million a year is spent on visits to New England, a very popular spot for watching for Fall colors. But other states display the beautiful colors as well, like southern Ohio, the hills of Kentucky or Tennessee and even the larger cities near rivers. This issue offers several ideas for activities at “out in the country” destinations with the leafs turning as a special bonus. Blend the two activities and you’ve got a great extended

weekend getaway. See page 5, 8, 12, and 22 for different places to visit with special fall activities. If you prefer life in the big city, see page 11 as Savannah lights up the night with firewords displays or dine in Orlando at one of their participating magical restaurants. I like to blend one or two things together on an extended weekend, so I particularly enjoyed mixing a shopping trip with a unique dining excursion in Elizibethtown. See page 15 for the details. Back to the leaves, whether they are next door, down the street or in a nearby town, plan to “turn over a new leaf” by taking the family on a getaway to enjoy time together making memories to last a lifetime. That’s what makes an extended weekend worthwhile!

St. Clair’s Massacre On a small triangle of land on the banks of the Wabash River in the late 1700’s, the course of United States history was changed forever! It was on this plot of land that two significant battles took place. The first battle (1791), “The Battle on the Banks of The Wabash” or “The St. Clair Massacre,” was the largest confrontation ever to take place between Native Americans and the U.S. Army. Even to this day that battle stands as the greatest loss ever suffered by the United States Army! Nine hundred of the 1200 soldiers were killed or mortally wounded. Page 12

Nearly 100 camp followers suffered the same fate at the hands of nearly 1500 warriors under the command of Little Turtle of the Miami’s and Blue Jacket of the Shawnee’s. First Congressional Investigation The first congressional investigation in U.S. history took place after that battle. When, in the course of the investigation, the “evidence” began to implicate members of President Washington’s own cabinet, the investigation was called off.

CHANGING HISTORY 1790 – 1795 Visitors to present day Fort Recovery will be impressed with how much of that watershed military history comes alive today.

You will see... 1. The clearly evident “Wabash hillside and triangle of land” where over a thousand lives were lost and the river flowed bloody. Where a surviving St. Clair soldier described the scene as “A pumpkin field, a steaming pumpkin field!” (scalped heads on that cold snowy November morning) 2. The reconstructed Anthony Wayne fort 3. A totally renovated museum housing detailed and accurate figures of Wayne’s Legion. 4. The prehistoric and historic Native American history, models and artifacts, all of which tell the stories of those proud people! Blue Jacket of the Shawnees, Little Turtle of the Miami’s! 5. The obelisk monument 6. The Greenville Treaty Line Marker 7. The pioneer cemetery 8. Two log cabins depicting early colonial homes and tools. 419-375-4649 www.fortrecoverymuseum.com

Anthony Wayne’s Legion Fortunately the 1791 massacre and incredible embarrassment of the United States Army was not the end of the story. President Washington called Revolutionary War leader, Anthony Wayne back into service. He was given broad authority to raise and equip a “real” army. Wayne modeled it after the old Roman Legions. This army, The Legion of the United States, became well equipped, trained and disciplined. The fort of “Recovery” In 1793, Wayne ordered soldiers to construct a fort on the site of the disastrous ‘91 massacre. Fall, 2010

Choosing this land, Wayne was sending a psychological message to the natives that the army and the United States were back! Unlike the previous forts named for war heroes, he ordered that this fort be called “Recovery!” The Battle of Fort Recovery The second conflagration in 1794 took place on the same triangle of land as St. Clair’s Massacre. With the protection of the fort, nearly 250 soldiers were able to resist a two day relentless attack by 2500 warriors again under the command of Little Turtle and Blue Jacket.

Tourism officials along the Alabama Gulf Coast are working overtime to communicate accurate information to potential guests in light of the gulf oil spill and its effects on the 32 miles of beach front in the coastal communities of Page 14

Gulf Shores and Orange Beach. “One of the biggest challenges that we faced early on in this battle was addressing the enormous amount of information - some of which was dramatically incorrect regarding our beach status,” said Kim Chapman, public relations manager for the Alabama Gulf Coast CVB. “On a proactive front, we established a one-stop webpage that includes our daily updates in addition to our daily YouTube videos, which enable guests to see with their own eyes the current status of our beaches. Also featured on this webpage (www.thebeachfacts.com) are visitor submitted photos and the oil spill cancellation policies and other incentives currently offered by our lodging partners.” Chapman added that honesty www.WeekenderExtended.com

was vital to all of the organization's communications. “Regardless of the situation, we have made a promise to our guests to be honest about the oil effects on our beach. We are seeing a lot of positive feedback from current and potential guests who appreciate our accurate information.” As people throughout the region and nation are asking how they can help, Chapman offered this suggestion: “We have received a healthy amount of feedback from our loyal guests who have watched their children and grandchildren grow up on our beaches. The best option for people to help the Gulf Coast region is to make plans for a family vacation in our area. We welcome the opportunity to show them our great Southern hospitality.” - IE News Service Fall, 2010


s g n i h T Eat ‘n’ Shop o Do T ELIZABETHTOWN, KY Back Home

has become known

for the restaurant that was really never meant to be. The story of Back Home Restaurant started about 21 years ago when Linda Fulkerson and her mother, Lola Allen (also known as Nanny) became well known around town for their crafts. The business started out of the trunk of Linda’s car and the business began to grow. In 1984, Linda rented a small two-room store in the heart of Elizabethtown and quickly outgrew the space. So they moved to a larger location with five rooms. Husbands who brought their wives to shop needed something to do while waiting. So Linda came up with the idea of serving pie and coffee. Once again the business outgrew its location. In 1989, Linda found the present old house to hold an expanded craft line and antiques. So the women needed even more time to shop. Beans and cornbread, pimento cheese sandwiches and more pie was added to the menu. The four tables were increasingly full with lunch customers. Rooms originally set up for crafts had to give way to more tables. Family owned and operated, Linda has passed the torch to her daughter and son-in-law, Lori and Steve. Husband Tommy still does much of the cooking still using family recipes. Catering is also now available. The original Italian-style house was built in 1872. It Fall, 2010

has been a d d e d o n t o m a n y times. In some of the rooms, the brick from former outside walls is still visible. The house features many twists and turns and is full of history.
