Embellished with Nature

Dungeness was a gift of about 10,000 acres of prime land to show gratitude for Nathanael Greene’s service to his country. “The grounds are beautifully laid out, and are embellished with flower-gardens, and handsome groves, and avenues of olive trees.”

Appletons’ Illustrated Hand-book of American Winter Resorts, D. Appleton

My name is Marsanne Petty, and I’m a researcher through and through. I chase obscure topics into the end of oblivion and compile what I find for all to read. Sometimes my family thinks I’m crazy, but my dogs are good with it. If you want to follow me down the rabbit hole, check out my stuff here and here. If you want some great oddities in your own mail box, sign up at The Southern Sage.

Nathanael’s Death Room

“I remember well the large room with its unfinished walls of tabby-work in which he died, and the little grave-yard in a corner of an old cotton field in which he was buried, within a few feet of my grandmother’s grave.”

— The Life of Nathanael Greene, George Washington Greene
