The last two days I have been writing about searching for one John Potter of Savannah, Georgia, at one of his local hangouts on Tybee Island called Huck-A-Poos. This is in my Running the Blockade blog. I came across his name and Huck-A-Poos while writing about the man who has recently come forward to admit that the supposed photograph of the Confederate ironclad CSS Georgia was his hoax.
After I found that he had a picture of himself on a wanted poster at the bar with something about a record for drinking PBR beer in one night, I knew I had to check this place out.
It starts with a trip out to Savannah's dive bar, Pinkie Master's (and I have no doubt he used to go there as well) and eventually leads to a traffic jam going to Tybee Island and a trip to Fort Pulaski. Well, it is a Civil war blog after all.
But, this could also be considered a road blog, so give it a read. Just click on the Running the Blockade Blog to the right of this entry.
