The Crown Affair in Saga of the Elizabethton Tarheeels

A Note on the "Crown Affair" in Chapter Three of Saga of the Elizabethton Tarheels

This past summer, two Aussie "sons" were here and we traveled to the coast of North Carolina. While in Manteo, a group of high school students?16-17 years old, I suspect--were in and out, over and under as those with energy tend to do. We noticed two guys, wearing crowns, holding hands and racing about while we were out of doors. Later, in the museum, where there are "easy-on garments" from the pre-colonial period for students to slip on, the two were trying on costume--both male and female --and posing for fellow students to photograph. One of the Aussie sons comment, "Must be a story in that." After brewing it for a couple or three months, Saga of the Elizabethton Tarheels began. When the crowns appeared in the story, it was not at all like the event, but the crowns were definitely the inspiration for the story.

Thanks, Sequoyah, for that insight. Saga of the Elizabethton Tarheels is among our favorite tales, along with all of your work. But you knew that. :icon10:

To anyone who isn't yet a Sequoyah fan, we highly recommend the Dude-created Sequoyah's Place site, where you'll find all of Sequoyah's stories and novels.

Happy reading!

Aaron, for The Mail Crew
