A Glimpse Into The Past

(A tribute to William Burns)
(from the archives)

As I opened my history book, began
to read a familiar name came into
view. One as a child I had heard my
father speak of so often.

My great great great grandfather
William Burns Sr. b.1756 d.1843

William was a Revolutinary War Hero
fought in the battle of Kings Mountain

Served in Capt. Joseph Martin's
company fighting the Indians,
in Col. Christie's Virginia regiment.

He was discharged at Long Island
of Holston in Tenn. Rein listened
the same day serving in Capt.
Martins company under Major Belcher
fighting for the frontier.

Shortly after the battle of Ramsour's
Mill, he enlisted in Wilkes County
N. Carolina to serve with Capt.
Micajah Lewis Co. in Col. Gordon's
N. Carolina regiment. He served in
Virginia, N. Carolina and Tennessee
military.

The Battle of Kings Mountain

Patriots from Virginia, North
Carolina and Tennessee rose up in arms
went to fight the British.The men met
in S. Carolina, selected eleven hundred
of their best men and horses. William
Burns was one of the Virginians under
William Campbell.

They marched all night though the rain
and on the morning of 10-7-1780, they
arrived at Kings Mountain. The British
had already selected their position and
had the advantage over the Americans.
The battle was on. Another American
regiment appeared on the mountain top
The battle field was equalized. The
battle was a life and death struggle
so was the American cause.

There was a clang of sabers. the charge
and counter charges of cavalry. the
cannons roared, shrieks of havoc, a
bloody struggle, moans of wounded and
dying men.

When the battle ended the Americans
had truly fired a shot that was heard
around the world. Never before had such
a battle been fought.

Thomas Jefferson said it was the turning
point in the war. Great Britian
understood the patriots of America
could not be conquered.

A national monument has been erected by
the U S government in honor of The
Kings Mountain Hero's.

As I read about William and his struggles
in life I am so proud to carry his name.
I would wish the pages of time could
unfold, repeat itself so he and I could
meet and know each other.

But six generations has passed so all I
can do is pay a tribute to him.
To my beloved grandfather buried deep in
the soil of the country he loved.

His name is listed in the archives as a
Kings Mountain Hero.

A Hero?

Her hero is pretty and thin
Her hero is a hero to many
A hero of fame and a hero of fortune
A role model, a hero of glamour
Her hero is a hero to many

His hero is fit and fast
His hero is a hero to many
A hero of sport, a hero of games
A role model, a hero of victory
His hero is a hero to many

Her hero is clever yet plane
Her hero is a hero to few
A hero of science, a hero of logic
A role model, a hero of knowledge
Her hero is a hero to few

His hero is a hero of art but he is poor
His hero is a hero to few
A hero of word a hero of writings
A role model, a hero of language
His hero is a hero to few

But that’s the thing with your heros....
Hero worship is only skin deep.

My Hero's

My hero's aren't in comics
My hero's don't wear capes
My hero's don't battle mythical
Monsters
My hero's don't have a special call
My hero's aren't talked about daily

No,
My hero's are real
My hero's wear green
My hero's risk their lives
For the ones they love
My hero's risk so much
For so little in return
My hero's aren't invincible
My hero's are normal people
With big hearts
My hero's aren't perfect
My hero's make mistakes
But my hero's are
Courageous
Brave
And honorable
My hero's fight for the red white and blue
My hero's fight for me and you

my hero

my hero, my hero didnt have any special powers,
because my hero didnt fight
my hero didnt have any wings
because my hero didnt fly
my hero didnt have any special costumes
because my hero didnt like any heroes
my hero is diffrent than any kind of supercreatures

my hero is just an ordinary humanbeings
my hero makes me smart
my hero changes my future
my hero makes me know something
because my heroes is my teachers.
god bless you, teachers.
