FREMONT, N.C. -- “Who is buried in Grant’s Tomb?” was a common question heard on the television show “You Bet Your Life” in 1959 when the Aycock Birthplace State Historic Site first opened its doors.
That question and many more will be asked on March 3 at 7 p.m., when Aycock Birthplace will hold its second annual Civil War Trivia Contest. Categories include “Way Down South in the Land of Cotton,” “What’s Your Name?” “Chickens in the Breadpan Pickin’ Out Dough” and “So You Want To Be in Pictures?”
“This is loads of fun – but it can get kind of cut-throat if people are into this game,” says Johnny Joyner, Site Assistant Manager. The trivia contest will have 20 contestants answering questions about the War Between the States.
People are asked to call and reserve their spot for the competition. The event is free and open to the public. For more information call (919) 242-5581 or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org.
